Workshop Overview:

Climate change poses significant and growing risks to human and natural systems. Recent advances in climate science, particularly climate change detection and attribution, have helped to clarify the extent to which anthropogenic climate change is driving more severe extreme weather events (e.g., heatwaves and floods) and contributing to slow-onset phenomena (e.g., sea level rise) that already threaten human health, infrastructure, and the environment. Scientists’ ability to model future climate-related risks has also improved significantly in recent years. This workshop will explore whether and to what extent scientific information about the risks posed by climate change currently informs legal decisions regarding climate change mitigation and adaptation. Participants will also consider how climate science might be used in the future to spur further legal action to address climate change.
