This conference will assess priorities for climate change adaptation and building resilience in the UK.
It will be an opportunity for stakeholders and policymakers to examine the third National Adaptation Programme (NAP3), which was published by the UK Government in July 2023, and with applications opening in 2024.
Discussion will centre on the requirements for implementing and delivering enhanced resilience and adaptation. Delegates will examine the vulnerabilities of key sectors and regions within the UK, assess the progress made, and identify unresolved issues related to bolstering resilience. They will also consider what further actions are necessary to ensure the successful implementation of adaptation strategies.
Delegates will also consider priorities for improving the public’s understanding of risk and resilience, looking at strategies for engagement and frameworks for collaboration with communities.
We are pleased to be able to include keynote sessions with Baroness Brown, Chair, Adaptation Committee, Climate Change Committee; Dan McCartney, Head of Climate Adaptation, Defra; Dr Candice Howarth, Co-Director, Place-Based Climate Action Network; and Professor Suraje Dessai, Climate Change Adaptation, University of Leeds.
