Our land in a changing climate: impacts and implications

A free talk, entitiled Our land in a changing climate: impacts and implications, will be held on Wednesday 25 September at 5:30pm at Lincoln University. The speaker will be James Renwick, who is Professor of Physical Geography at Victoria University, specialising in large-scale climate variations. He was awarded the 2018 New Zealand Prime Minister’s Science Prize for Communication.

Land is at the heart of debates about climate change. How we use land affects our climate, but as the climate changes so too will the land and the biological and social systems it supports.

In a week of action on climate change, and following the release of the IPCC report on Climate and Land, NZ’s leading climate researchers explore the relationship between land and climate, and the challenges and potential it presents for our urgent need to respond to climate change.
