Climate Change Network

Role and Function

Our Climate Change Network (CCN) provides expert advice for CIWEM and is a sounding board for current and new initiatives. The CCN enables CIWEM to deliver technical and policy outputs to a consistently high standard in this subject area. The network acts as a focal point, bringing together practitioners working in the area or for whom climate change is a particular area of interest or expertise. The network includes professionals from across the public and private sectors and across the globe. For more information about our work on climate change please visit the energy and climate change page.

We declared a climate and ecological emergency, the declaration can be viewed here.

Specialist Panel

The CCN is an online global network. A Specialist Panel meets periodically to help direct the work of the Network as a whole.

The Panel is chaired by Adam Hosking, Global Director for Jacobs with overall responsibility for Water Resources technical services. The panel's Vice-Chair is Hannah Coogan Regional Delivery Director (Flood, Coast and Maritime) at Binnies and Chair of the RSK Women’s Network.

The Specialist Panel aims to:

  • Be a focal point for professionals engaged in issues relating to climate change
  • Engage, inform and assist the UN, governments and other bodies on climate change
  • Advocate best practice globally
  • Contribute to the range of CIWEM activities
  • Raise its profile as an established network at conferences and events
  • Assist in the production of a range of policy outputs

If you have experience of working on climate change issues and would like to join the Specialist Panel, please email for more information.
