The Chair of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) Adaptation Sub-Committee, Baroness Brown of Cambridge, is a keynote speaker at the conference, as are Sonia Phippard, Director General for Marine, Natural Environment and Rural, Defra and Liz Parkes, Deputy Director, Climate Change and Business Services, Environment Agency.

Delegates will also consider the outstanding research priorities and adaptation strategies for at-risk areas of the UK, and evaluate the future requirements for the management of climate-resilient infrastructure, risks of climate change to ecosystem services and to public health, and the opportunities to improve efficiency in adaptation measures.
