CEP's Clare Twigger-Ross presenting at RGS SEMINAR: Resilience to Climate Change: Who pays (and who benefits)?
This knowledge-exchange event, taking place at the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) in London on Tuesday 17th November, will explore the question of ‘who pays?’ to deliver adaptation to climate change in the UK, and with this, community resilience. Coming a week before the Spending Review, this event will consider not only who should pay in financial terms to deliver climate change adaptation, in an age of austerity, but also who will pay socially through a failure to adapt – or even through measures deemed necessary to adapt.
CEP's Clare Twigger-Ross will be presenting the results of a study undertaken by a team led by CEP for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation: ‘Community resilience to climate change: An evidence review’. The seminar coincides with the publication of the report by JRF which should be available on their website from the 17th November.
The seminar will be followed by a panel discussion and the opportunity to stay to dinner to explore community resilience and adaptation to climate change.
