With the clock ticking down to COP26 later this year, the Walker Institute have just hosted a video panel discussion on net zero targets and their place in mitigating global climate change. Chaired by Walker researcher Ross Fairgrieve, the event engaged three climate change experts:
Dr Simon Evans deputy editor and policy editor of the Carbon Brief covering climate and energy policy. He previously worked for environment journal The ENDS Report for six years, covering topics including climate science and air pollution.
Marcia Rocha, Policy Analyst and Scientist at OECD currently working on a project on Losses and Damages from Climate Change. Marcia has worked for the last decade on the interface between science and policy on climate change.
Associate Professor Stefan Smith is Lecturer in Energy Systems and the Built Environment, at the University of Reading and Co-Investigator at the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS). His research focusses physical, social and technical interactions in relation to energy demand.
