Tyndall events at COP 27

Achieving climate resilient development in Africa and Asia, November 9 16:45-18:15, Room 7 (150)

UEA Speakers: Dr Mark Tebboth and Dr Rachel Carmenta

Huge challenges remain for African and Asian countries to achieve development within the constraints of meeting increasing stringent mitigation goals and simultaneously adapting to current and future (climate) risks. We synthesise our research in Kenya, Namibia, Indonesia, India to extend IPCC’s AR6 Ch.18 on Climate Resilient Development Pathways. We spotlight risks and contexts including fire, hazard, blue carbon agriculture, and governance lessons towards socially-just and climate-resilient development.
