International climate risks and adaptation at COP26 and beyond

Wed 20th October 2021, Online

Please join us for an online session to discuss the exposure of the UK to international climate risks as well as the opportunity at COP26 to better integrate adaptation in global efforts to tackle climate change.

The Independent Assessment of UK Climate Risk identified extreme weather events in the UK and globally can create cascading risks that spread across sectors and countries, with impacts an order of magnitude higher than impacts that occur within a single sector. Meanwhile, there is an opportunity at COP26 to show leadership on climate adaptation and secure clear commitments for increased adaptation financing and support developing countries with capacity building for implementing national adaptation actions.

During this session we will hear from lead authors of the International Dimensions chapter of The Third UK Climate Change Risk Assessment Technical Report.
