Weather refers to the highly dynamic day-to-day state of the atmosphere, whereas climate describes weather statistics over longer periods of time. A particular focus of stakeholders is the frequency and impact of severe events ranging from short thunderstorms to multi-year droughts. Due to the intensifying process of urbanisation and, population growth, combined with climate change, risk of life in addition to risk of damages and disruptions are more significant than ever.
