Webinar: Reframing Carbon Capture and Reuse: Building a New Industry

21. August 2018, Webinar

"LightWorks at Arizona State University is hosting a two-webinar series to examine whether the pace of R&D funding for carbon capture, storage and reuse can be accelerated if it is framed as a social responsibility. How can government, industry and citizens contribute to the social responsibility of meeting the climate imperative by funding the underpinnings of the New Carbon Economy?"

Conference: WC Climate Change 2018

13.-18. September 2018, Rome / Italy

"The Organizing Committee of the World Congress on Climate Change 2018: Impacts & Responses invites you to participate in the congress, which will be held on Sept 13-15, 2018 at Rome, Italy. The conference will be the culmination of a momentous twelve months in the climate debate and needs a breakthrough in the form of a roadmap for a future climate change deal. Early in the year, scientific evidence of global warming, as set out in the fourth assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), put the reality of human-induced global warming beyond any doubt. What we are facing is not only an environmental problem, but has much wider implications: For economic growth, water and food security, and for people's survival - especially those living in the poorest communities in developing countries."

Workshop: Climate Change Impacts and Risks in the Anthropocene (C-CIA)

19.-23. March 2019, Riederalp, Canton of Valais, Switzerland

"Bringing together the “physical science” and the “adaptations” and “policy” communities will thus be an important and exciting element of the Workshop. Adaptation to extreme events and subsequent policies aimed at long-term implementation of adaptation strategies must manage and need to address both existing and increasing levels of uncertainty. This implies that a high level of knowledge on extreme events needs to be generated in order to reduce uncertainty, thus leading to more robust estimates of exactly what can be achieved in terms of adaptation, within what timeframe, and at what cost. This kind of policy guidance is ultimately what is required to curtail risks and impacts generated by climate extremes, and it is with some confidence that we believe that the planned workshop, through its interdisciplinary mix of researchers, will be able not only to address the key issues, but also provide some guidance as to applicable solutions."
