Me presenting the new Reading Adaptation Plan

I have given a lot of presentations over the years, on a variety of climate change related and other subjects. I do enjoy the chance to talk to a new audience. And I take great pleasure in passing on what I have learned, and in helping to explain some often complex issues and ideas.

Some of the topics that I have covered are listed below. Please do get in touch if you are interested in me talking to your group or organisation (my contact details are at the bottom of the page).

  • Extreme events and the link to climate change
  • Where Reading gets its water from
  • Historic and future flooding, notably on the River Thames
  • About the Reading Climate Change Partnership, our new Strategy and the new Reading Climate Action Network
  • Climate change and health
  • Climate change and heat
  • UK climate emission targets
  • The UK climate projections and what we can expect for Reading
  • Catchment Climate Change Adaption Plans – a new risk assessment for the Water Framework Directive, second cycle River Basin Plans
  • Scenario Testing Tools – a new concept for river catchment climate adaptation planning
  • The first Climate Change Adaptation Plan that I commissioned for Reading

22 November 2021

I am delighted to be on the panel for this event on Friday 26 November: As our climate changes, how do we protect British landscapes and encourage resilience amongst their local communities ? Join us to discover how communities have coped with environmental change in the past and the lessons we can all learn from this, as we deal with the effects of climate change happening right now. How are these landscapes altering and what adaptations do we need to make to ensure our management of them is sustainable?
