Vision the effects of climate change on Monmouth, + influence the policy makers
Climate Ready Gwent: Workshop Number 2
Thursday 21 March, 6pm to 9pm at the Shire Hall, Monmouth
At the first workshop last week we had a very lively evening, albeit on the most sobering of subjects, + we identified:-
- The key risks to Monmouth from the various climate change impacts such as flooding, droughts, rising temperatures + extreme heat events
- Ways in which the community perceive risk to the townscape, landscape, economy, service + residents
- The community’s ideas for adaptive action + how we see ourselves contributing + working with relevant agencies
Next week we will take the outputs of this session + share our ideas with agencies – the County Council, Natural Resources Wales, the Fire Service, Gwent Police, Health Board, Gwent Wildlife Trust + others – who will be instrumental in managing the consequences of climate impacts on the town. We will share information on:-
- What the risks are
- What is already being done to plan for climate risk
- What else needs to be done
- The role of the community in building resilience
The aim is to develop specific actions + an ongoing process for work on climate adaption.
This second workshop will again be taken by consultants Dr Alan Netherwood + Dafydd Thomas – well, why not? – they did a grand job last week! They have extensive experience in working on climate risk + adaptation with government, local authorities, agencies + communities. We are confident they will give us another stimulating evening that will result in a range of key findings + actions for the agencies + for our community that will yield positive outcomes for the coming decades + Future Generations.
Outcomes of the first workshop will be available early next week. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy + to let us know if you would like to attend on the 21st.
