Join in live to listen to the following speakers discuss this recently released report published by the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI), Geological Survey of Northern Ireland (GSNI), and the Royal Irish Academy (RIA).
This webinar, run with the American Geological Institute and the Royal Irish Academy, details how Geoscience can be oriented toward a smart economy, and describes how the Geoscience sector can contribute to economic recovery. The report also provides a clear vision of the sector in 2020 and its implications for Geoscience on the island of Ireland.
Adapting to climate change will go beyond knowing what the future temperature might be or how much more (or less) rainfall we might expect. It means understanding the sensitivity of landscapes to likely changes in weather patterns, and how the natural and urban environment responds.
This conference is aimed at UK institutions and businesses that are likely to be impacted by both climate change and the 2008 Climate Change Act.
Using specific case studies, we will highlight the broad range of environmental impacts due to climate change, the equally broad range of opportunities due to climate change, and the approach that can be adopted to properly assess and develop adaptation strategies.For more information or to register for Climate Change: Impacts and Opportunities hosted by BGS near Nottingham.
