The pan­el will bring togeth­er a range of experts work­ing with­in the field of cli­mate adap­ta­tion in order to show­case the diver­si­ty of work on this top­ic. The event will provide an oppor­tu­ni­ty to iden­ti­fy and dis­cuss the most press­ing issues per­tain­ing to cli­mate adap­ta­tion and to devise col­lab­o­ra­tive, inter­dis­ci­pli­nary solu­tions.

The dis­cus­sion will be mod­er­at­ed by award-win­ning envi­ron­men­tal jour­nal­ist Andrew Revk­in. As a reporter for the New York Times, Revk­in wrote Dot Earth, an envi­ron­men­tal blog exam­in­ing the envi­ron­men­tal impacts of human activ­i­ty. Revk­in cur­rent­ly works as the senior reporter for cli­mate and relat­ed issues at ProP­ub­li­ca.
