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.
· 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
