THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will provide a timely opportunity for delegates to analyse the recent publication of the National Adaptation Programme (NAP), following its release by Government, and will examine its key priorities for enhancing adaptation to climate change - and how best to meet objectives recommended by the Climate Change Adaptation Sub-Committee.
Discussion will focus on commitments within the NAP to address threats such as flood risk, public and environmental health, and the built environment - and how new guidance might impact major stakeholders and interest groups - including those in agriculture, natural habitats and conservation, policymaking and industry - as well as emerging challenges and areas of responsibility.
Sessions will also look at strategies from across the UK and internationally to combat the threats of climate changes, and the lessons that can be learnt, as well as best practice in innovation and design.
Further sessions will discuss priorities for stakeholder collaboration and implementing adaptation resilience and preparedness across major sectors, considering the perspectives of businesses and their advisors, local government, environmental interests, and finance and infrastructure groups - as well as ways to improve cooperation between stakeholders and policymakers - and the policy guidance provided for meeting the objectives of the 25 Year Environment Plan.
