  • How to identify the potential impacts of climate change on natural hazards
  • How to identify the potential impacts of climate change on the built environment.
  • How to identify the potential impacts of climate change on ecosystem services and the natural environment.
  • It will also explore how to identify cumulative effects of climate change on the natural environment.
  • Identifying Geo-hazards; rockfalls, avalanches, land-slides, quick clay slides , flooding• storm surges• storms• sea level rise• heat waves• draughts
  • Identify how climate change may affect  natural hazards
  • Impacts on natural environment and ecosystem services•
  • Uncertainties limit our ability to project climate change impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem services.
  • The cause and effect between climate change and increased natural hazards are not straightforward.
  • The natural environment is especially vulnerable to climate change.
  • The robustness of the ecosystems depends on the cumulative effects of climate change and other man-made disruptions.
