The UK Climate Resilience Programme has its own YouTube channel.

What is the UK Climate Resilience Programme?

On our channel there are individual interviews with different members of UKCRP, discussing the programme, its benefits and different aspects of climate resilience.

The interviews are 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).
