A TALE OF UNPRECEDENTED SOCIO-ENVIRONMENTAL EXTREME EVENTS SPEAKER Prof. Gabriele MESSORI, Università di Uppsala (Svezia)
The world is seeing increases in the frequency or intensity of a range of environmental extreme events. Furthermore, it is often those who are already vulnerable that expe-rience the biggest impacts from these extremes. How will our society interact with and respond to future unprecedented extreme events? I will try to answer this question by combining social science theories describing how different societal groups are affected by, and recover from, extreme events with numerical projections of unprecedented ex-treme events and local analyses of past extremes. An application to the case of extreme droughts in Southern Africa illustrates how we can use this perspective to build storyli-nes of unprecedented socio-environmental extremes.
