French to English translations [PRO] Science - Environment & Ecology / Risk management (Risques Naturels)
French term or phrase:dérèglement climatique
climatic change, global warming, natural disasters...
Good point on not having provided enough context. Apologies. In fact, the context was a promotional message for a trade show on Global Risk Management. The show is divided into several sectors (eg fire prevention, security, occupational safety, ). One of the newest sectors is "natural risks". The description of "natural risks" refers to "dérèglement climatique", which, after consulting the different answers proposed on this web page, I finally translated as "global climate change". Sometimes the simplest answer is best. Thanks, everyone.
