Lectures in Climate Change, Volume 2


These presentations are first in a bi-weekly series sponsored by CCRUN, that is drawn from the recent book, Our Warming Planet: Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation, published by World Scientific. The series presents key adaptation topics including methods for impacts and adaptation assessment, impacts on sectors, effects on different regions and countries, and adaptation policy and practice. The lecture series is for students, teachers, and interested researchers and colleagues around the world to be better able to understand various aspects of climate change.

The webinar series will follow the presentations on various topics on climate change by their authors, and allow a dialogue between experts in the field and people interested in gaining deeper knowledge in a broad array of topics in climate change impacts and adaptation.

The book, containing most of the material in this webinar series, can be purchased as an e-book, soft cover, or hard cover copy at the World Scientific Publishing website.

Webinars will take place bi-weekly on Wednesdays from 10:00–11:30AM. The full schedule can be found here..
