Climate risk and adaptation: The importance of nature and land use

Tue 14th September 2021, Online

Please join us for an online session to discuss how the natural environment is exposed to priority risks identified in the Independent Assessment of the UK Climate Risk.

A healthy, functioning natural environment is essential for biodiversity, the continued delivery of key ecosystem services to the economy and to the health and well–being of our society.

Despite this, the assessment found that current adaptation measures are inadequate to match the scale of key risks to the natural environment, including risks to terrestrial and freshwater species and habitats, soils, and natural carbon stores and sequestration.

During this event we will hear from lead authors of the Natural Environment and Assets chapter of The Third UK Climate Change Risk Assessment Technical Report.

We will also discuss the urgent actions that need to be implemented in the next five years to address these risks.
