'IMPREX is about providing climate services to public and private partners involved in hydrological sectors in Europe. Think of hydropower, flood protection, agriculture, international trade, shipping. Its philosophy is that the way we deal with weather extremes today is a good source of inspiration for anticipating future climate', explains IMPREX Project Coordinator Bart van den Hurk.

Ertug Ercin, from Water Footprint Network, explains how weather extremes and climate change outside of Europe will affect Europe itself. The work of this case study will be important for policy makers, industrialists and the agricultural sector.
With our interconnected world, where countries are dependent upon each other for food and energy imports, understanding how other areas of the world are impacted by climate change is imperative.

IMPREX's Pan-European case study delivers high quality risk forecasting that will help those working on the water ways across Europe deal with flood and drought. With these risks occurring at a higher rate in some of Europe's largest rivers, effective forecasting makes all the difference in being able to deal with extreme weather in Europe.

Dennis Meißner, from the German Federal Institute of Hydrology, tells us how his IMPREX study will improve forecasting for the transport sector across Central European Rivers.
As well as this, the case study assesses different IMPREX hydrological models and their applicability to European rivers. In the end, they hope to see a reduction in vulnerability to hydrological weather extremes and to hopefully one day extend to other regions.
