During the COP26 meeting in Glasgow, my research group (Prof. Mohit Mohanty, Dr. Andre Schardong) released a new tool for
showing floodplain maps across Canada under various climate change scenarios. The work got the overwhelming attention of the media and the general public.

This special ICFM8 webinar and published book of abstracts
(available here) are
“instead” of ICFM8 - conference that had to be cancelled. The webinar draws from ICFM8 efforts and
contributions proposed by the ICFM community. The book and the webinar program provide some insights
in the current work on flood management and point the direction to follow in the future. Three
distinguished panellists from North America, Europe and Asia provided the current state of flood management
efforts around the world.
The June 18th ICLR Friday Forum did address my work done on floodplain mapping
over Canada. I talked about (i) floodplain mapping methodology; (ii) population exposure assessment; and (iii) impact of
changing climate (based on the most recent climate information from CMIP 6).
Very proud to be included into the Reuters list
of the world’s top climate scientists. To build it, Reuters created a system of identifying
and ranking 1,000 climate academics according to how influential they are. Read the article in
I am humbled and honored to share that I am elected

I am deeply honored and grateful to have been appointed an Honorary
Professor by the China Institute for Water and Hydropower Research. This appointment is a
testimony to the significance of long-term collaboration I have with the IWHR. It's been such
a pleasure to work with many of IWHR researchers already, and I look forward to everything we can
accomplish together in the years ahead. Thank you.
