Abstract: A workshop on indicators for climate extremes and socio-economic impacts under different emission targets was held at the Joint Research Center (JRC) in Ispra, Italy on October 4-6, 2017. JRC and the Center for International Climate Research (CICERO) co-organized the workshop as part of the implementation of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Grand Challenge on Weather and Climate Extremes. The workshop brought together expert scientists from climate sciences, statistics, health, agriculture, and economics to discuss how to move beyond traditional climate indicators describing climate-related hazard to more impact-relevant indicators for quantifying climate risk. Building on an earlier Future Earth workshop on “Extreme Events and Environments”1 and a WCRP workshop on “Addressing the Challenge of Compound Events” 2, this workshop aimed at facilitating practical discussion on climate-related impacts to be expected for different emission scenarios, knowledge gaps and indicators that can facilitate decision-making on climate risk mitigation and adaptation planning across various sectors. The setting provided opportunity for cross-community discussion around methodologies that are used to link climate extremes and their impacts, including various challenges in doing so.
