22 July 12.00-13.00
Speakers: Prof Rebecca Warren (Tyndall Centre, UEA) and Gemma Holmes (Committee on Climate Change)
Chair: Jason Lowe (Met Office)
This webinar will describe the work of the project ‘Impacts and Risk Assessment to better inform Resilience Planning’ (IMPRES). This project began by performing a preliminary harmonised climate change risk assessment for the UK. Next, it began to work on improving the risk assessment methodology, with a particular focus on the techniques and data used to project heat stress which is one of the key risks identified by the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment. Work has focused on the use of UKCP18 data and the choice of an appropriate heat stress metric.
Rachel Warren is Professor of Global Change and Environmental Biology at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of East Anglia, UK. Her research focuses on the production of policy relevant science related to climate change and sustainability
Gemma Holmes has worked at the Committee on Climate Change since 2014 and is the Adaptation lead analyst on infrastructure and health. She has contributed to the Adaptation Sub-Committee’s latest progress report to Parliament, and led a report on the impacts of climate change on housing. Previously, in the CCC she was the analyst for devolved administrations.
