ImageCat consortium kicks off Climate Change Risk Modelling project in support of National Adaptation Plan for Antigua and Barbuda
08 Apr 2020
On Wednesday, April 8, 2020, ImageCat hosted the kick off meeting for the Climate Change Risk Modelling Services project for the country of Antigua and Barbuda. Attendees included the client representatives from the Department of Environment (DOE) of the Government of Antigua and Barbuda. The consortium led by ImageCat is comprised of Kinetic Analysis Corporation (KAC), UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Willis Towers Watson (WTW), Sustainability Managers and the United Kingdom Met Office. The consortium brings together institutions from the natural disaster risk and development planning field, including individuals with globally recognized expertise and experience in climate change hazard and risk modelling, disaster risk and damage assessment, and software development.
On this one year project, ImageCat will be working with the project team to assess current and future risk due to our changing climate. The project entails evaluating and using available data on exposure, hazard and vulnerability as well as filling the data gaps to model the impacts of the changing climate on the islands of Antigua and Barbuda. The hazards include tropical storm wind and surge, flooding, sea level rise and extreme temperature and precipitation. The results will cover both economic and environmental impacts, which address key national priorities for Antigua and Barbuda.
