Keep up to date with the latest expected dates for new CCC publications, as well as key events featuring CCC speakers.
The Climate Change Committee will be attending the COP26 climate summit. We are delighted to announce that we will be hosting two events in the Blue Zone (attendees will need to have the appropriate accreditation) but if you can’t make it in person, we’ll be livestreaming both events.
Monday 1st November | 18:00 -19:00 | Making Ambition Count – the role of Climate Councils in turning ambitions into actions
This event will showcase how Climate Councils, through providing expert, evidence-led and politically independent advice and evaluation can support Governments to increase and sustain climate policy ambition and delivery. It will launch the International Climate Councils Network (ICCN) – an exciting new collaboration bringing together 20+ Climate Councils from around the world. With growing interest from Governments worldwide in the Climate Council model, the ICCN will set out principals, underpinned by research from the WRI and Ecologic, for how Climate Councils can effectively contribute to robust climate change governance.
Monday 8th November | 09:00-10:30 | Climate Risk and Adaptation: How We Understand and Respond to Climate Change Hazards
This event showcases the UK’s proactive steps to build adaptive capacity and reduce climate risk to communities both domestically and internationally through risk assessments, action-oriented research and knowledge exchange. The panel discussion will draw on findings from the third Independent Assessment of UK Climate Risk published in 2021. The event is co-organised by Defra, FCDO, CCC, the Met Office and the University of Exeter.
