The cost of climate change: Hurricanes Harvey and Irma highlight risks

Communities in the Caribbean and southern US are scrambling to deal with the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Estimates suggest the storms caused hundreds of billions of dollars of damage - costs which will be borne by federal and local governments, aid agencies, insurance firms and the victims themselves. For more on what can be done to assess, limit, and deal with the risks posed by events linked to climate change, Kate Moody talks to Gerald Maradan, co-founder and CEO of Eco-Act.

Also in this programme:

  • The electric revolution is coming to a road near you! We tell you about the top trend of the Frankfurt Motor Show and how the auto industry is adapting.
  • And it's struggled to survive years of civil war, but can Ukraine's forgotten wine industry begin to bubble back?
