    Season 6 highlights: Science, Policy & Climate Resilience

    Season 6 highlights: Science, Policy & Climate Resilience

    How should we be expecting to live as we start to adapt to the changing climate? In our race to resilience, are there limitations to what we shoud expect to see on our supermarket shelves, escalated by the Ukraine war and cost of living crisis? And what real progress have we made since COP26?

    To help build momentum after the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, University of Cambridge Professor Emily So worked with the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) podcast team to engage with academics, policy professionals, and other climate experts to host a new mini-series (season 6) focussing on climate adaption.

    We're so pleased to share with you the highlights of the series, produced in partnership with the research project Expertise Under Pressure, part of the Centre for the Humanities and Social Change at the University of Cambridge. 

    The mini-series was edited and produced by CSaP's Communications Coordinator Jessica Foster. Research for this series was supported by CSaP's Executive Director Rob Doubleday and CSaP's Policy Researcher Nick Cosstick.
