What do you do when extreme weather destroys your home?

Climte scientists at NTNU’s Department of Geography have previously mapped the vulnerability of Norway’s municipalities and population to floods, landslides and storms.
The researchers are now conducting a new research project to learn what qualities support communities in preparing for and managing natural hazards and climate-related events, and how communities manage to get back on their feet afterward.

Gunhild Setten is a Professor of Geography at NTNU and heads up the research project Climate Change and Natural Hazards: The Geography of Community Resilience in Norway (ClimRes).  ClimRes project is part NORDRESS “workpackage” on community resilience in disaster prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery.
