Climate change resilience – opportunities for mitigation and adaptation
Land managers are facing the dual pressures of reducing emissions while also adapting to a warmer world. The water environment will bear the brunt of the climate crisis, with summers 7.4°C hotter, summer rainfall decreasing by up to 62% and winter rainfall increasing by 59% by 2050. This seminar will cover the ways land managers can start increasing resilience to climate change, covering water quality, water management, flood and drought.
