BMF Climate Change Adaptation Workshop
Published on 4/10/2012
The aim of this one-day workshop is to provide an interactive forum to explore what risks and opportunities, climate change may present to marina and boatyard managers.
The workshop will not only help managers to prepare for the impacts of future climate change, it will also consider how to build resilience against current weather variability.
DATE: Thursday22 November
TIME: 1000 - 1500
VENUE: Marine House, Egham, Surrey, TW20 8BF
The day will be jointly facilitated by the Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP), which communicates scientific evidence of climate change impacts to marine stakeholders, and the Environment Agency, which has responsibility for supporting businesses to help them adapt to our changing climate.
By the end of the workshop you will have:
- An improved awareness of marine climate change impacts on the marine leisure industry.
- Systematically explored how all aspects of your business (markets; process; logistics; people; premises and finance) are currently affected by the weather, and how future climate change could affect your operations.
- Identified the top three issues emerging for your own company and explored how they might be addressed (or if more appropriate, to take back to your organisation and discuss how best to take forward).
As managers, you will be able to consider what climate change impacts may, or as importantly may not, be important for your business and manage risks and opportunities appropriately.
MCCIP will write up a short summary of this work so that you, and the wider marine leisure industry, have a tailored overview of climate risks, and practical responses for your sector.
Numbers are limited to 20 participants so registration, which is free, will be on a first come, first served basis. Please register by contacting Amanda Simpson firstname.lastname@example.org or 01784 223628
