Assessment of weather and climate risks (SIETO)

Organization: Finnish Meteorological Institute

Lead Researchers: Heikki Tuomenvirta

Year: 2017-2018

The (SIETO) project has produced a national weather and climate risk assessment, focusing in particular on the vulnerabilities of different sectors to hydro-meteorological and climatological hazards. The risk assessment of the project was also used to develop the governance model for future risk assessments. The results of the project support the implementation of the National Climate Change Adaptation Plan 2022 and provide material for the national, EU and global level governance frameworks of weather and climate risk management.
