Decision Analysis for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation

University of Exeter, Harrison Building. 20th - 21st April

This workshop will bring scientists from a broad spectrum of the climate community together with decision makers, policy advisors, and members of the statistical and decision analysis communities to begin research and knowledge transfer. There will be a series of talks from each of the different communities focused on relevant existing tools for decision support, including description of different climate models, products and data as well as general methodology from decision analysis and talks from the user community. These will be followed by breakout sessions designed to encourage ideas for novel multi-disciplinary approaches to the provision of decision support and the development of policy support tools, both within the current constraints of the available models and processes generated for the IPCC cycle (for example, CMIP); and with an eye on more idealized or blue-sky frameworks specifically tailored to the requirements of policy makers.

Keynote Speakers Include:

Richard Allan, University of Reading: “The role of CMIP in climate research for policy support”

Chris Hope, University of Cambridge: "Integrated Assessment models”

Kathryn Humphrey, Climate Change Committee: “The Climate Change Risk Assessment”

Jason Lowe, UK Met Office: “What do policy makers want and how do we advise them”

Dave Sexton, UK Met Office: “The UK Climate Projections"

Jim Smith, University of Warwick: “Introduction to Decision analysis”
