On August 9th, the International Panel on Climate Change released its 6th Assessment Report on the physical science basis of climate change. According to the climate scientist Zeke Hausfather, this new report «provides an unprecedented degree of clarity about the future of our planet, and the need to reduce – and ultimately eliminate – our emissions of greenhouse gases».
In light of the IPCC 6th Assessment Report, this webinar will help you better assess the socio-ecological impacts caused by climate change and discuss how the EU is adapting and mitigating these impacts. Ultimately, this webinar will be the occasion to reflect on socio-ecological challenges and opportunities caused by climate change.
