RMetS Climate Change Forum 2022
A Vision for 2050 and Implications for Action
Through the United Nations, Governments have committed to holding global warming to less than 2°C above pre-industrial levels and make efforts to keep the rise to below 1.5°C. The recent sixth Assessment Report of the IPCC makes it clear that to achieve this net global greenhouse gas emissions need to fall to zero by 2050. What does this mean in practice? Are we on track to reach net zero by 2050? If not what more needs to be done? Furthermore, it is clear from recent weather events that we need to improve our resilience to climate change through more effective adaptation strategies – where should our priorities lie?
To address these challenges the Royal Meteorological Society is holding a Climate Forum on Thursday, 20 October 2022, at the Coin Street Conference Centre, London. It will draw on the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Reports exploring a 2050 vision for climate change and our responses to it. The morning session will focus on actions on mitigation and adaptation already planned and consider what more is needed, particularly in the UK, with a focus on three key sectors – food, buildings, and transport.
