Climate Change
BBC coverage for the Severn

A workshop on ‘Climate Change & the Severn Estuary’ was hosted by Cardiff University and the Severn Estuary Partnership in Bristol on 29th January 2007. BBC Bristol featured the workshop on the Points West evening news and the Sunday Politics Show. Local planners and professionals met with scientists and academics that specialise in climate change research, to consider how to share efforts to plan for the affects of climate change around the Severn. Detailed presentations were followed by interactive sessions to explore collaborative opportunities. The group will meet again during the Severn Estuary Forum in June. There will be an opportunity to hear more about this work at an international conference on climate change and the coast, to be held in Cardiff this summer – further information: www.coastnet.org.uk
