• Provide a review and highlight the wealth of evidence available from the practitioner community and how this can be collated;
• Examine how practitioner knowledge and evidence can be better incorporated into the IPCC and wider scientific process.
• Examine how the practitioner, policy and scientific community can foster collaboration
• Discuss the components required to establish a partnership-based platform to collate and disseminate information.
This session will demonstrate the implications of “what if” scenarios in a visually stimulating manner, using state of the art modelling tools, to demonstrate for example “what if City X was redeveloped and densified such that populations increased by 30% in the next decade, where would the risks exist, what are the potential impacts, how these could affect the people living, working, visiting the city, and how resilience could be embedded to the system of systems which makes up a community.
