UK Climate Resilience Programme
Indicators of changing climate risk in the UK

Wed 20th May 2020, Online

In order to increase resilience to climate change it is necessary to understand climate risks and how they are likely to change in the future. This seminar presents a summary of the Climate Risk Indicators project (involving the University of Reading, CEH Wallingford and the University of Leeds), which is calculating a series of indicators relevant to policymakers in the UK at national and local levels. The selected indicators represent a range of thresholds for decisions and consequences across many sectors, including water resources, flooding, transport, health, agriculture and emergency planning. The indicators are calculated with UKCP18 climate projections, and presented both for low and high emissions and at different levels of forcing, and are presented at a range of spatial scales. The seminar will describe the indicators and their uses in policy.
