Abstract: Increasing magnitude and frequency of climate extremes under global warming are threatening the socioeconomic development in many parts of the world. The Mekong River Basin (MRB) is a good example for how climate extremes can affect society, as the transboundary MRB has experienced hydroclimate changes and fast socioeconomic development during the past decades. The MRB is a flood-prone area with high flood induced mortality, where heavy monsoon rainfall and tropical cyclones (TCs) landfall are t... more
