Climate Change and Big Data

Climate Change and Big Data

17th July 2018

Climate change is already having a substantive effect on the international economy, as well as to society and the biosphere. By 2030, it is estimated that the costs associated with adapting to a shift in global temperatures of just 2 percent could cost between $70 and $100 per year.

Working alongside the Institute for Environmental Analytics at the University of Reading, the APGDA will bring together a panel of leading figures from the IEA, parliament, and government to discuss how big and open data is being used to find solutions to the problems posed by climate change, as well as how Britain can become a world leader for this emerging field of study in data science.

Key Questions:

  1. How is data being used to identify problems resulting from climate change?
  2. In what ways is data visualisation a useful tool for finding solutions to emerging issues?
  3. How is this data supply chain being integrated into wider scientific and economic networks?

More information will be circulated in the coming weeks.
