Climate change is creating already a number of new challenges with which emergency planners and managers are not that familiar.
Climate change induced emergencies are characterised by at least two uncommon aspects: the nature and size of events and their consequences.
Western Europe in addition to many other parts of the globe has experienced over the past few years a number of novel events, such a severe storms, summer drought and winter floodings.
Some of these situations have secondary effects and can create downstream emergencies such as potential energy shortages if river water levels are too low to pump water for power plant cooling.
