UCL Geography to host international workshop in advance of Copenhagen meeting

Quantifying the impacts of climate change on the availability of freshwater

On Friday 3 April, UCL Geography is hosting a Water Resources Workshop - 'Quantifying the impacts of climate change on freshwater availability'. Those attending will include representatives from UNESCO, DECC, DEFRA, DFID, NERC and several international NGOs. Collaborating researchers with UCL, from Rhodes University (South Africa), Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil), McMaster University (Canada) and the Yangtze River Basin Commission & National Climate Centre (China) will present the results from NERC-funded research based on novel analyses of the projected impacts of increasing global air temperatures on freshwater resources and availability.

 

The research is designed to inform climate policy discussions and debate later this year in Copenhagen.

Before the main workshop, on March 30-April 2nd, the researchers will meet to discuss the latest results as well as the uncertainty and implications of thier findings
