The UK Climate Resilience Programme ran from 2019 to 2023

How is the UK building the evidence for a climate resilient future?

Wednesday 4 December, 10.00 – 11.00, UK Pavilion, COP25, Madrid

How is the UK building the evidence for a climate resilient future?

Robust evidence that is aligned with policy and user need is vital to help build resilience to a changing climate.

Work is underway on the UK’s third Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA3), using existing research and new, state-of-the-art climate projections to assess the urgency of adaptation for specific climate risks.

A new Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) project will add to research on climate resilience. This event will look at process of assessing risk, and benefits to government, businesses and individuals.

Key speakers:

·        Liz Bergere (Defra): The need for evidence: Policy drivers including CCRA and their evolution over time and evidence gaps

·        Richard Betts (Met Office / University of Exeter): Delivering the evidence for CCRA3: Approach and scope of CCRA3 evidence report

·        Jason Lowe (Met Office): Addressing the evidence gaps: SPF Climate Resilience programme

·        Silvana Birchenough (Cefas) – International case study: Enhancing fisheries resilience in Dominica

·        Simon Evans (Carbon Brief) – Chair
