Please join us for an online session to discuss the need for joint action to adapt to climate change alongside action to reduce emissions to Net Zero.
Chaired by Baroness Brown, Chair of the Adaptation Committee, and with contributions from the CCC’s Chief Economist, Mike Thompson, and Head of Adaptation, Kathryn Brown, this webinar promises to explore the cross-overs outlined in our Sixth Carbon Budget advice where action to reduce emissions further benefits action to adapt to a changing climate and vice versa.
This year is of great importance for both reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change globally. The CCC will be playing a key part in that - publishing a joint progress report on mitigation and adaptation in June and producing the Third Climate Change Risk Assessment later this year. With progress expected from the UK Government on a strategy to achieve Net Zero, the response to our Sixth Carbon Budget, and COP26 in November, this webinar will help consider where actions on both are mutually beneficial.
• 10:00-11:00, Thursday 18th March 2021
• The event will be chaired by Baroness Brown, Chair of the Adaptation Committee
• Presentations from Mike Thompson, Chief Economist, and Kathryn Brown, Head of Adaptation
