The UK Climate Resilience Programme now has its own YouTube channel. We interviewed our Champions, Suraje Dessai and Kate Lonsdale, as well as other members of the SPF UK Climate Resilience Programme, at the Climate Impact and Risk Assessment National Meeting in Leeds on 11-12 September.
Questions we asked them were:
- What is climate resilience? (Hint: there are definitely different takes on this!)
- How will the UK Climate Resilience Programme benefit the UK?
- What is your role in the SPF UK Climate Resilience Programme?
- What research are you doing on climate resilience?
- Who will benefit from your work on climate resilience?
There are also individual interviews with Professor Jim Hall, Chair of the UKCRP steering committee; Professor Jason Lowe, Met Office Science Co-ordinator for the UKCRP; Professor Hayley Fowler, Principal Investigator of the FUTURE-DRAINAGE project; Professor Suraje Dessai and Dr Kate Lonsdale, UK Climate Resilience Programme co-Champions; and Dr Freya Garry, Programme Scientist at the Met Office (pictured top).
Now that we have the channel up and running (you can find the link easily at the top of our Home Page – click on the YouTube icon), if you have relevant content from UKCRP projects and work programmes, please let us know and we can share it.
