Enhanced urban adaptation efforts needed to counter rising extreme rainfall risks

Hemmati, Mona; Kornhuber, Kai; Kruczkiewicz, Andrew

Impacts on lives and livelihoods disproportionately occur in traditionally underserved communities, particularly in urban areas. To influence policy and behavioral change at the community level, climate services must be developed specific to extreme rainfall events and subsequent floods in urban environments.
