London Climate Action Week events There is still time to check out the ever-growing list of exciting climate-related events for LCAW, and here’s a reminder of what we’re organizing:
Webinar: New BSI standard on adaptation pathways This webinar will introduce the new British Standard BS 8631:2021 Adapting to climate change: using adaptation pathways for decision making. Come along to find out more about this approach to adaptation, which helps organizations create long-term plans and make decisions within the uncertainty and risks from a changing climate. Featured speakers include our own Tim Reeder and Janet Laban from City of London, as well as Rosalyn Schofield from the Climate Change Committee. 21 July, 2pm
Webinar: Cities on the Frontline: Addressing Urban Heat Organized by the Resilient Cities Network and the World Bank, this webinar follows on from last year’s discussion of Compounding Vulnerabilities: Urban Heat and Covid-19, and features colleagues from The Hague and Athens to discuss ideas and solutions to tackle urban heat. 24 June, 1pm BST
Independent Assessment of UK Climate Risks You’ll have seen items in the news about the launch of the Climate Change Committee’s evidence report for the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment last week. If you didn’t have a chance to join the launch event, you can watch it here (it’s well worth the time). And you can find the assessment and accompanying documents here and here.
