Climate resilience: international efforts for a global problem

Martin Williams, Technical Director for Marine and Coastal, and John Bevington, Technical Director for Disaster Risk Management, are exhibiting at the UK Pavilion at the UN Climate Conference (COP24) this week (3-7 December).

Working with the Department for International Trade (DIT), Martin and John are presenting in the plenary area of the UK Pavilion on Friday 7 from 13:00 – 14:30. The first presentation will focus on our climate resilience work, the second on our involvement with the Copernicus project and the role of ForeCoast® Marine and the third focuses on Flood Foresight.

Drawing on a range of international case study examples, the session will explore the approaches used to increase the resilience of communities, businesses, infrastructure and the environment to present and future climate impacts.

Key strands include:

  • Adaptation planning

  • Adaptation actions
