How to make UK Climate Ready - Introduction to the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment and National Adaptation Programme
Defra is responsible for developing a National Adaptation Programme to address the risks and opportunities set out in the Climate Change Risk Assessment. The focus of the programme is on helping UK businesses, local authorities and civil society become more resilient to climate change impacts. The National Adaptation Progamme will reflect new and ongoing policies within Government which are being proofed against climate risks, but equally Defra want to encourage awareness and action beyond central government players and capture these activities in the document.
Dr Darius Campbell Presentation
Hosted during week 2 of COP26, this panel discussion focused on how to build a business case around taking action on climate change.
The Low Carbon Construction event hosted by the Yorkshire and Humberside regional network, looked into how building back better presents an opportunity to do things differently. In particular, it provides an opportunity to address some of the challenges presented by the decarbonisation agenda.
This webinar provided a unique first-hand briefing on this important development in the build up to COP26 and outlined progress and proposals developing through the Taskforce, along with practice informed perspectives on the potential of carbon markets both globally and for organisations.
In this webinar, we learned about the outcomes of this review, considerations identified across carbon offset and ‘compensation’ solutions, and implications of the findings for those developing their carbon offsetting programmes. The webinar focused on the context of the Environment Agency.
Now that it's been almost two years since the flurry of climate emergency declarations were made by multiple organisations across our region and as COP26 approaches, we took a look at the challenges and the opportunities that have been encountered by public sector organisations in leading climate emergency response at local level.
The second day of online delivery of Scotland’s EIA Conference saw three experienced presenters discuss their views on EIA’s progress in different aspects of climate change and nature enhancement goals.
