Flood Expo keynote speakers announced

The whole Flood Expo team is really excited to announce that the first wave of keynote speakers have finally been announced!

Alongside returning favourites from 2018’s keynote lineup, Mary Dhonau, from Know Your Flood Risk, and Daniel Rosenberg from Gravitas, we have a fantastic lineup of incredible speakers from across the whole Flood industry. From case studies, to addressing sustainable challenges in the flood industry, this is undoubtedly the strongest keynote speaker lineup The Flood Expo has ever seen and we hope you will agree. So we are happy to announce that the following speakers will be joining us at the NEC, on the 11th and 12th September 2019:

David Nash from the Z Zurich Foundation will share the work of Zurich’s Flood Resilience Alliance in building a system-based methodology, which goes beyond grey infrastructure solutions. He will show how their approach creates locally relevant actions, helping communities globally develop in a climate-smart and risk-informed way, and show how we can measure resilience as a result.

Fai Fung from The Met Office will speak about the future climate projections for the UK. UKCP18 is designed to help inform the management of future risks from climate variability and change, providing updated probabilistic estimates of the ranges of future climate change and results from a new suite of global, European and UK-scale climate models.

Tim Beech will speak about Thames Water’s innovative approach to managing surface water in partnership. They are working in one of the most densely populated and urbanised regions in the UK, placing a lot of pressure on drainage. He will outline their shifting emphasis towards reducing the volume of surface water entering their sewers with partnership in mind.

Alastair Moseley from the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) will explain the key elements of the new Code of Practice for Property Flood Resilience, how to access it and the huge benefits that it will bring to installers, insurance companies and millions of property owners alike throughout the UK.

Final meeting to approve country work programme that aims to boost capacity of Belize to access world’s largest climate fund

Final meeting to approve country work programme that aims to boost capacity of Belize to access world’s largest climate fund

Like other low-lying coastal nations, Belize is particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Its geographical location leaves the country exposed to the risk of rising sea levels and increasing frequency and intensity of tropical storms and hurricanes that have traditionally hit the area with catastrophic consequences. Additionally, its economic dependence on natural resources heightens its vulnerability to rising temperatures and the resulting impacts on a variety of socio-economic sectors and on the environment of coastal areas and forests.

Research indicates that climate change impacts could cost the twenty-four island nations of the Caribbean a total $11 billion by 2025, but these figures are likely to be an underestimate. The costs of inaction cannot be ignored. And while preparing for such impacts and a low carbon pathway are critical, they are costly. The Green Climate Fund (known as the GCF), offers an attractive source of funding to achieve these goals. The GCF is currently capitalised at USD 10.3 Billion and is the largest climate change fund in the world.

To date, GFC has funded two projects involving Belize, including a multi-country project on energy efficiency and renewable energy implemented through the European Investment Bank (EIB), approved in April 2017; and a national project promoting climate-smart agricultural production implemented through the International Fund for Agriculture and Development (IFAD), approved more recently, in February 2019.

Belize has also received support through grant funding from the GCF to boost the capacities of the country to access international finance for investments in climate change projects. Since February 2018, the Belize’s  Ministry of Economic Development and Petroleum (MEDP) in collaboration with the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) has been running a project, “Capacity Building of National Designated Authority (NDA) and Preparation of Country Strategic Framework”, to strengthen the capacities of the MEDP and to prepare a Country Strategic Framework to guide Belize’s engagement with the GCF.

The project is approximately 14 months in duration, expected to end in April 2019, and is being delivered with the support of Acclimatise, a UK-based climate change adaptation and climate finance consultancy, together with a national consultant.

The MEDP plays an important role in facilitating access to the GCF in Belize and is responsible for acting as the focal point for communications with the GCF and national organisations, identifying national funding priorities, giving no-objection to project proposals, and nominating national organisations for accreditation.

Since the project inception, a broad consultative process has been set up, involving all relevant public sector agencies, businesses and business associations as well as academia and civil society organisations in Belize. Through three workshops and a large number of one-to-one meetings with key stakeholders and donors, conducted between April and November 2018, the MEDP and the project team have built a Country Programme containing a pipeline of potential projects to be funded by GCF and key steps for their implementation. This pipeline not only provides funding priorities for climate change but also aligns with the country’s sustainable development priorities and key sectors.

A final meeting will be hosted by MEDP on 27th March 2019 from 8:30 to 4:30 pm at the Radisson Hotel in Belize City.

The meeting aims to present key aspects of the draft Country Programme and the priority projects proposed for GCF funding and receive feedback from participants. All relevant stakeholders in Belize have been invited to provide comments on the draft document and to participate to the consultative process to inform and validate the Country Programme. By project completion, Belize will have significantly increased its capacity on accessing GCF finance.

The Belize-based Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) coordinates the region’s response to climate change. Officially opened in August 2005, the Centre is the key node for information on climate change issues and the region’s response to mitigating and adapting to climate change. CCCCC sought accreditation to the GCF in 2015 to undertake and scale up both mitigation and adaptation projects across the region in order to drive a paradigm shift in the region’s development patterns.

About the Green Climate Fund

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a global fund created to support the efforts of developing countries to respond to the challenge of climate change. GCF helps developing countries limit or reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to climate change. It seeks to promote a paradigm shift to low-emission and climate-resilient development, taking into account the needs of nations that are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts.

It was set up by the 194 countries who are parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2010, as part of the Convention’s financial mechanism. It aims to deliver equal amounts of funding to mitigation and adaptation, while being guided by the Convention’s principles and provisions.

Join the debate at Asia Climate Week

Join the debate at Asia Climate Week

The Global Weather Enterprise (GWE) is the name coined for the organisations and individuals in the commercial, public and academic sectors who contribute to scientific research, technology, observations, modelling, forecasting, and forecast products and services associated with weather & climate change.

The GWE has a major role to play when it comes to mitigating and managing and giving early warning of the increasing impacts of extreme weather & climate change.

However, whilst it is widely accepted that the commercial, public and academic constituents of the GWE must co-operate if they are to address the huge challenges ahead, there is an increasingly vociferous debate about how this might be best achieved.

Taking the debate one step further …

Since its launch in 2014, InterMET Asia has helped facilitate this debate by bringing the GWE together to talk candidly, without the pre-set, formal agendas that characterise most other meetings.

In 2019 this will be taken a step further with a debate – What is the single biggest challenge facing the GWE in the next five years and how can it be addressed?

This is your chance to join that debate and have your say. What do you think is the single biggest challenge facing the GWE in the next five years? And more importantly, how do you think this challenge can be met?

To get the ball rolling, we’ve asked some experts what they think.

The challenges they’ve come up with include:

  • Building trust & co-operation between the public, private and academic sectors.
  • Building a long-term sustainable approach, especially in the developing countries, to addressing extreme weather and climate change.
  • Striking a balance between existing and new technologies.
  • Making weather data accessible to all, and especially to the less well-off countries.
  • Bringing hydrology & meteorology together.

Now have your say …

  • What do you think is the biggest challenge facing the GWE?
  • How do you think it can be met?
  • What are the issues standing in the way that must be resolved?

To make your views known, contact the InterMET Asia, Conference Director here >>

What you will take away from InterMET Asia 2019
