On August 10 join us for the special ICFM webinar. We decided to use this
special ICFM8 webinar and the publication of the book of abstracts (available from the ICFM website)
“instead” of ICFM8. This special webinar draws from ICFM8 efforts and contributions proposed by ICFM
audience. The book and the webinar program provide some insights in the current work on flood
management and point us in the direction to follow in the future. Three distinguished
panellists from North America, Europe and Asia will provide the current state of flood management
efforts around the world. You can check the invitation on the ICFM website.
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

testimony to the significance of long-term collaboration I have with the IWHR. It's been such

accomplish together in the years ahead. Thank you.
