WP5: GLOF implications & impacts

Using the CORDEX simulations outlined in WP2 and the GLOF simulations from WP4, at selected sites in Peru we will undertake a detailed analysis of the potential downstream economic and societal impacts of future GLOFs, including the impact on communities, infrastructure and agriculture. We will make recommendations for mitigation strategies. Finally, as an output from this research project we will make recommendations for GLOF hazard assessment protocols and mitigation strategies in lower income countries globally.
