FREE PUBLIC EVENT
How are climate impacts changing the world we live in and what does this mean for Australians? How might impacts change in the future? What do we need to do to effectively adapt to these impacts and manage the risks they present? Join world-leading researchers to explore these and other questions according to the latest comprehensive assessment of climate change impacts, adaptation and vulnerability by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
In September 2013 the IPCC released the first volume of its Fifth Assessment Report, which assessed the science of climate change. It found that the human influence on the climate system is clear, and that since the 1950s the climate has been changing faster than it has for millions of years. It also found that continued emissions of greenhouse gases will cause further warming, affecting all aspects of the climate system.
The second part of the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report, to be released in late March 2014 has involved hundreds of scientists as authors and contributors. It builds on the first volume’s findings by assessing current and future climate impacts on people and their environment. The potential for adaptation to effectively manage changing climate -related risks is also assessed.
Join us to hear two short overview talks on what the new IPCC report says about climate change impacts, adaptation and vulnerability globally and for Australia. This will be followed by panel of the report’s authors who are leading experts on ecosystems, food, coasts, human societies, and risk management to answer questions from the audience and clarify what this new report means for us and our environment.
You can also submit questions prior to the event via Twitter<https://twitter.com/AMOSupdates> using the hashtag #askAMOS.
