Met Office
Virtual Climate Science Conference 2021 – Day 2

Wed 12th May 2021, Online

During this crucial year for addressing the climate crisis, the Met Office Hadley Centre, having recently marked its thirtieth anniversary in 2020, will host a conference spanning two days, which will bring together leading scientists, policy makers and communicators from around the world with the aim of setting out a vision for how climate science and services can be harnessed to support the ambitions of diverse societies worldwide to build a more sustainable, more resilient low carbon future. Its legacy will be to lay out a scientific agenda to inform climate policy over the next decade. Our aim is for this to be an innovative and diverse conference with net zero carbon footprint?with remote participation facilities and engagement from participants worldwide. 

Conference themes 

  • Current and future risks from weather and climate.
  • High impact, low likelihood outcomes of climate change (including tipping points).
  • Future carbon and mitigation strategies to avoid the most dangerous impacts of climate change. 
  • Climate resilient development: minimising impacts and trade–offs, and maximising the co–benefits of mitigation and adaptation.
  • Pan–Africa perspectives within the context of the four main conference themes, looking at the past, the present and the future over the next decade or so. Three sessions: Science perspectives, Technological Entrepreneurship Youth and Policy.
