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.
If you have climate change as an element of your work or are interested in climate change issues, please email Heather Gardner to join the network. Membership of the network is a great way to keep in touch with our work on climate change issues and to engage with peers. Membership of the network is open to both CIWEM members and non members.
We recently declared a climate and ecological emergency, the declaration can be viewed here. The Climate Change Network and Specialist Panel provided expert knowledge for our recommendations for building a resilient society in our Climate Resilience and Extreme Events paper. Other recent work includes our priorities for the National Adaptation Programme, and consultation responses on coastal flooding and adaptation to climate change, the draft climate change adaptation plan for Wales and the draft climate change adaptation programme for Scotland.
