With global temperatures rising, acute weather events are presenting a fundamental challenge to societies and businesses around the world. Climate change poses an increasing threat to global social and economic infrastructure. Climate resilience is the capacity of a system to absorb the stresses imposed by climate variability, allowing systems to evolve into a more robust state that are able to better withstand these threats.
In this webinar David Viner, Global Practice Leader at Mott MacDonald, gives a 30-minute introduction to climate resilience in consultancy, with an element of career retrospective. Anna Tuddenham from the climate resilience team then presented alongside David providing an early career professional’s perspective with reference to project work and case studies.
