Megan Bickle is an Adaptation Research Manager at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, and led on the government delivery of the third Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA). She is now exploring requirements for the fourth CCRA and how future National Adaptation Programmes can include monitoring and evaluation to assess progress in adapting to climate change and avoid maladaptation. Megan holds a PhD in fluid dynamics from the University of Leeds, specialising in mesoscale convective systems and the West African Monsoon.
Natalie Roberts is Defra’s lead on the Natural Environment chapter for the 3rd National Adaptation Programme (NAP3). Her primary role is to support policy teams with their development of adaptation plans, and to bring those plans together into a coherent programme of work, which will be implemented across the NAP3 period (2023-2028). She holds a PhD in palaeoceanography from the University of Cambridge, where she investigated the link between deep Atlantic currents and climate change.
