Climate Change Adaptation in Yorkshire & Humber
Jon Clubb, Local Government Yorkshire & Humber / Joseph Rowntree Foundation
This month, we look at how the Region proposes to adapt to Climate Change, with a talk from Jon Clubb of Local Government Yorkshire & Humber and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Jon will set out some of the key risks and impacts for Yorkshire & Humber, together with recent and current examples of work to become more resilient and plans for the year ahead to broaden the scope of adaptation work that Your Climate, the Climate Change Partnership for Yorkshire & Humber, undertakes. It is a key year ahead with the publication of the National Adaptation Plan, activity under the Environment Agency’s Climate Ready programme and greater collaboration across the regions to share learning and expertise.
