Climate change and islands: Challenges and opportunities

May 25, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm BST

Small islands are said to be the places most threatened by climate change. Yet islands are diverse while islanders have survived and thrived in many communities for millennia. Is contemporary climate change really so different and devastating? What can we learn about climate change adaptation from other fields? This panel provides island and islander perspectives on dealing with climate change.

Chair: Ilan Kelman, University College London

Speakers:

Professor Lino Briguglio, Director, Islands and Small States Institute, University of Malta – Climate change and small islands with experience from Malta

Nicole Greenidge, University of Manchester – Local perspectives from Barbados

Emma Lovell, Overseas Development Institute, London – Applying volcano knowledge to climate change adaptation
