To raise awareness about the extreme weather events challenges and to disseminate our expertise, the XAIDA teams have to be credible and efficient. We apply to our framework, publications, methods, team efforts but also in our workshop, recruitment process and every governance decision those values:
To achieve the objectives of the project, XAIDA brings together teams of specialists in extreme event attribution, atmospheric dynamics, climate modelling, machine learning and causal inference.
The project gathers sixteen institutions across Europe and 60 persons. The close network and collaboration among those institutions make the large XAIDA network up to 75-80 persons. In order to make everyone comfortable and able to work in the best conditions, all the institutions have HR rules, ethics and values.
XAIDA, a EU-funded project started in September 2021, brings together the interdisciplinary expertise of a research consortium of 16 universities and research organizations. Our consortium unites experts in machine learning, statistics and climate modeling.
Together we are designing new methods and apply them to recent high-impact events to understand the role of climate change. Further, we are studying if such events, or even more-intense ones, will occur in the future. We are collaborating with concerned stakeholders from different sectors to prepare risk assessment and adaptation strategies for extreme weather.
Climate is changing fast, with losses and damages experienced in every region and every sector. However the awareness of this fact remains limited. Of particular relevance is how climate change modifies and enhances extreme weather events.
During the last 5-10 years, a large number of extreme weather and climate events have occurred, causing damage to infrastructure and casualties. This has raised the question about the role of climate change in altering the odds or the magnitude of a number of such events.
Together with teachers, we are developing new educational material to improve the education of younger generations.
The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.
