Following the recent release of the IPCC’s AR6 Working Group (WG) I Report, CONSTRAIN and the IPCC are hosting an informative workshop to showcase how physically based climate emulators are contributing to the overall IPCC Sixth Assessment Report. Leading figures in the work of the IPCC will discuss how climate emulators were used by WGI…
Despite its low contribution to greenhouse gas emissions, Africa is the most vulnerable continent to climate change. Already, the region is experiencing disproportionate impacts, from increasing temperatures and sea levels, to changing precipitation patterns and more extreme weather, all threatening human health and safety, food and water security and socio-economic development. The failure of global…
Carbon sequestration by vegetation and soil is an essential part of the approach when it comes to addressing climate change and achieving net-zero commitments. In the UK, the Climate Change Committee has proposed that extending hedges by 40% is one of the key changes needed to reach net-zero carbon by 2050. This would require the…
In just a few weeks, Glasgow will play host to a historical event of global importance, as people from across the world gather to discuss and demand action on climate change. COP26, the United Nations climate negotiations, will involve around 200 presidents and prime ministers and thousands of delegates, in what is considered the most…

On 9 August 2021 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will release the first report of its sixth assessment cycle – the only one to be published before COP26 in November– focused on the physical science of climate change. This webinar, featuring presentations from lead authors of the report, will unpick the key findings and…
Climate risks pose unprecedented risks to agricultural food production. Farmers cope with climate risks through adjustments in farm management practices. In recent years, Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) has also been proposed as a framework to manage climate risks. Transformations in agricultural landscapes due to changes in farm management or through the adoption of new CSA technologies…
Vice-Chancellor Professor Simone Buitendijk will gather a number of key voices to discuss the role of academic institutions in driving ambition for COP26 and establishing the legacy of cooperation and innovation that is needed to deal with the existential threat of climate change.
MPs from the Yorkshire and Humber region join the University of Leeds to discuss a framework for ongoing collaboration on climate action between the University and regional representatives.
Leading researchers will talk about the climate impacts of the food supply chain, including sustainable agriculture, consequences for consumer behaviour, and food waste.
Hear from three postgraduate researchers working in very different fields of climate research, covering climate resilient urban water supplies, the role of religion in climate action, and tracking the accelerating flow of Antarctic glaciers.
This webinar will explore the aims and likely debate at COP26, focusing on resilience, from three perspectives: international, national and local. Speakers include Youssef Nassef, Director of Adaptation at UNFCCC and Dr Louise Ellis, Director of Sustainability at the University of Leeds.
Join us for a discussion on how we can work together to ensure our response to the climate crisis is collaborative and inclusive.
Some of the leading voices in climate change research, policy and innovation will discuss priorities for African countries ahead of COP26 and how the research community can support ambitious action.
We welcome a panel of Leeds academics, businesses and national and regional representatives to discuss how the Leeds city region can work together to ensure a low carbon, secure future for businesses.
