Understanding the impacts of climate change to an organisation can be a complex and challenging topic. How do you understand climate change risk and subsequently develop and deliver a strategy for intervention?

This virtual event for Fit for the Future members will focus on the recently launched National Trust hazard map and how this approach could be used by members to identify climate change hazard levels, pinpoint their locations and identify the type of interventions that could be implemented.

 

Lead by Keith Jones (National Specialist – Climate Change Advisor at the National Trust), this event will provide an overview of the National Trust’s “game changing” hazard map. The map illustrates the threat climate change poses to the places cared for by the National Trust and offers some solutions on how to tackle it. Working to a worst-case model, the map plots places alongside existing data on climate change related events, such as flooding and coastal erosion. It’s the first map of its kind that plots data in this way and will help us identify the hazard level facing these places and pinpoint locations that may need interventions.

 

The event will include an update on how the National Trust is continuing to develop the map’s data range and how they plan make this available to all organisations. It will also provide an opportunity for network members to share their challenges, approaches and ambitions in understanding climate change risk and taking positive action.
