Sydney Environment Institute, Future Earth Australia and Climate-KIC present ‘Climate Science in Industry: Governance, Standards and Accessibility’.

Information about the impacts of climate change has historically been of most interest to researchers and policymakers. However the private sector, spurred on by regulation, stakeholder expectations, and risk awareness, is increasingly seeking to understand how it will be affected by climate change. This pursuit of industry-relevant climate information has implications for the public, which is affected by climate change and funds most core climate science research, but may be limited in their ability to access and interpret this research. It raises both technical and equity questions for policymakers, researchers, regulators, companies, consumers and civil society.

Join industry experts for this half day seminar at the University of Sydney.
