Seminar: Science and politics of climate change


  • DATE / TIME:
    2012•01•17    19:00 - 20:00

    “Science and Politics of Climate Change” is part of the Another Drop/UNU-INWEH/Water Without Borders Water–Health Seminar Series.

    While the potential impacts of climate change on human health and the environment are global in reach, the poor are likely to be the most adversely affected – and those changes will be felt most profoundly through water. Researchers are devoting much attention to this issue. But how are we applying this knowledge, and what yardsticks are we using to measure impacts? Furthermore, how are national and international political positions being affected by this knowledge?

    The featured speakers are:

    • Graham Knight, Professor, Department of Communication Studies & Multimedia, McMaster University
    • Roberto Quinlan, Associate Professor, Department of Biology, York University
    • Lucilla Spini, Executive Officer, Global Environmental Change and Human Health, UNU-INWEH
    • Richard Thomas, Assistant Director, Dryland Ecosystems, UNU-INWEH
