To mark its 30th anniversary, the UK Met Office Hadley Centre will host a Virtual Climate Science Conference on May 11-12, 2021 at 9:00 – 15:00 BST.
With the theme: “Net Zero and Climate Resilience”, the conference aims to set out a vision for how climate science and services can be harnessed in support of the ambitions of diverse societies worldwide to build a more sustainable, more resilient low carbon future. Its legacy will be to lay out a scientific agenda to inform climate policy post COP26. The virtual event will bring together leading scientists and policy makers, young people, community representatives and science communicators from around the world. Specific conference themes include:
- Current and future risks from weather and climate;
- High impact, low likelihood outcomes of climate change (including tipping points);
- Future carbon and mitigation strategies to avoid the most dangerous impacts of climate change;
- Climate resilient development: minimizing impacts and trade-offs, and maximizing the co-benefits of mitigation and adaptation; and
- Pan-Africa perspectives within the context of the four main conference themes, looking at the past, the present and the future over the next decade or so.
In this light, we are inviting you to join the said virtual conference. For more information and to register: http://www.metofficeconference2021.info/
