At HANNOVER MESSE 2022, researchers from Karlsruhe will provide valuable answers to increasingly pressing questions: How is global climate change affecting individual regions? What can we do to mitigate it? And how can we adapt to the unavoidable consequences? As one of four Helmholtz Climate Offices (Karlsruhe, Leipzig, Geesthacht, Bremerhaven), each with its own regional and thematic focus, the South German Climate Office at KIT has set itself the task of investigating the interactions between atmosphere, ice, ocean, and land surfaces as well as between natural climate variability and human impacts.

Focusing on the risks that increasingly characterize our everyday life and are more and more present in politics and current affairs, the KIT spin-off "Risklayer" identifies possible solutions to reduce future damages, to strengthen resilience, and to reduce profit losses in the wake of a disaster. A risk assessment is thus to be transformed into a concrete recommendation for action.

Finally, the Center for Disaster Management and Risk Reduction Technology (CEDIM) conducts research on causes, prevention, and management of not only natural but also technical risks. At KIT booth B40 in hall 2, CEDIM will present its results on the interactive globe of the South German Climate Office.
