Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker Centre for Science and Peace Research (ZNF) in cooperation with the Max-Planck-Institute for Meteorology, the Research Group Climate Change and Security (CLISEC) of KlimaCampus Hamburg, and the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia (KAUST)
The conference will be held on August 11-12, 2011 in Hamburg
The conference will bring scientist from all over the world together to exchange their ideas and latest research results about Aerosol Events and their possible consequences. The conference will address climatic and environmental changes as a result of various kinds of huge injections of aerosols into the atmosphere and the possible consequences for the world population. Environmental changes impact living conditions and in particular agricultural productivity. This could cause famines and other risks for human security. The required actions for climate mitigation and adaptation will be discussed and the question will be raised how the resulting challenges for regional and global governance may be tackled.
