Event description

Description


This event is open to all University of Edinburgh Masters and PhD students 

The pathways along which governments turn scientific knowledge concerning environmental problems, such as climate change and biodiversity loss, into action are tortuous and riddled with potholes. At the intergovernmental level, assistance in this complex and often fraught process comes from international treaties, like the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Convention on Biological Diversity, and scientific bodies, like theIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services.

 

Join Prof. Mark Rounsevell and Dr Annalisa Savaresi in this discussion where we will explore how effective these processes are in achieving their different goals, and what is the potential for the future.
