Speakers: Andrew Charlton-Perez (University of Reading); Alistair Ford (Newcastle University); Susanna Kankaanpää (City of Helsinki); Rachel Perks (Met Office); Jon Stenning (Cambridge Econometrics)
Curated by Met Office, University of Manchester and University of Newcastle under the UK Climate Resilience Programme (UKCRP)
This session will showcase a range of spatial datasets and methods related to climate risk and resilience associated with the SPF UK Climate resilience programme, and discuss how the data can be used for practical decision making. The first half of the session will focus on showcasing particular examples from the programme including risk informed hazard metrics, new national scale socio-economic information and a new framework called OpenCLIM, which seeks to integrate datasets to examine both risks and the effect of interventions to manage the risks. The second half of the session will provide a virtual panel to explore how the spatial datasets can be used in practice to raise awareness of local, regional and national climate issues and challenges and, further, how spatial data may be used in a range of decision contexts.
This panel will draw on expertise from those who are facing the practical challenges of using the data, such as local and regional policy and adaptation professionals as well as researchers.
Part 1: Short talks demonstrating the applications (who they are for, why they are needed, what they contain) with a Q & A on the examples and lessons on good practice.
Part 2: Facilitated virtual panel session on using spatial information for informing local to national scale use of the data to inform climate awareness raising and decision making.
