Event Details

Climate Change Adaptation


Venue: Law Society, Chancery Lane

Date: 8th April 2014

Registration: 08:30am

Debate: 09:00-10:30am

It is obvious that the world’s climate and weather patterns are changing. Rising global temperatures are causing more extreme weather events such as flooding and heatwaves. Under the Climate Change Act 2008 the Government is required to produce a National Adaptation Programme, the first of which is to be published in November 2013 and then reviewed every 5 years.

Adaptation to climate change covers, for example, agriculture and fishing, business, health and wellbeing, buildings and infrastructure and the natural environment and these are highlighted in the Government’s UK Climate Risk Assessment but the risks remain difficult to quantify with accuracy.


Science: Dr Celine Herweijer, Partner, Price Waterhouse Coopers

Law:        Anthony Hobley, CEO, The Carbon Tracker Initiative

Policy:    Lord Krebs of Wytham, Chair, Adaptation Sub-Committee, Committee on Climate        Change

Chair: Pamela Castle OBE


Each speaker will have 15 minutes to present and then the floor is opened for a question-and-answer session which lasts about an hour and turns the event into a proper debate. 


Please check the website before the event to determine whether, due to unforeseen circumstances, there has been a change to the panel of speakers.
