IPCC Extreme Events Report

It has finally been released the full version of the IPCC report on Extreme Events "Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation" (pdf). 
IPCC Extreme Weather Events ReportIt is an extensive survey of most relevant issues and literature concerning extreme weather impacts (also on the economy and society). Of particular interest, from my perspective, chapter 4 "Changes in Impacts of Climate Extremes: Human Systems and Ecosystems", ch. 5 "Managing the Risks from Climate Extremes at the Local Level" and ch. 8 "Toward a Sustainable and Resilient Future": they present several ideas and methodological approaches to evaluate the costs imposed by extreme impacts, the socio-economic drivers of vulnerability and all the critical aspects of adaptation policies (from multi-level government coordination to costs and benefits analysis).
