Welcome to the Centre for Climate and Safety
We create knowledge for management of climate related risks!
We search for answers to questions about risks connected to extrem weather such as intense precipitation, floods and windstorms.
We work in a wide manner with knowledge on natural disasters, societal planning and learning and we are good at linking our research with municipal and regional practice.
Centre for Natural Disaster Science, CNDS
Centre for Natural Disaster Science, CNDS, is a Swedish centre for research on natural disasters. In CNDS researchers from different scientific disciplines work together in transdisciplinary projects under a overarching goal that is to provide society with knowledge and a better understanding of natural disasters and to reduce consequences of natural disasters in Sweden and abroad.
There is a rising demand on society's ability to handle crises and major emergencies. The causes are multiple: new types of threats, changed levels of existing threats, changes in natural as well as social worlds such as climate change, complex societal systems and society's vulnerabilites. Oftentimes exercises are seen as key to how well society manages to handle a factual crisis but time and resources are scarce.
