Responses to climate change need to be well planned. With accelerating rates of changes this need involves difficult conversations. This talk will touch on the systemic opportunities and challenges of coastal climate change adaptation in England and Canada.
Glen Smith is a social scientist with more than 10 years’ experience in studying marine and coastal issues. Glen is currently a Visiting Fellow with the Ocean Frontier Institute. During this appointment, he is examining approaches to climate change adaptation at the coast in southeast England and in Nova Scotia.
He completed his PhD in natural resource management at UiT, The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø, where he focused on marine spatial planning (MSP) in Scotland, especially on process transparency, participation, and power dynamics in the governance of MSP.
He has since held post-doctoral positions in Cork, Ireland, and in London researching the social elements of climate change adaptation.

Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR), when paired with extensive emissions reductions, is a mitigation strategy to limit warming to 1.5°C as it removes legacy carbon emissions from the atmosphere by augmenting natural processes on ocean and land.
However, in order to meet climate goals, CDR must scale 30 times its present capacity by 2030, which is estimated to require an annual global investment of 1.13 billion USD/year for research and development.

This panel event is focused on the Global Greenhouse Gas Watch, which will provide a valuable tool to support the transparency of global mitigation action.
The system will be built on three components:
Open and unrestricted access to data will ensure a full transparency of system outputs, which will provide globally consistent information that will feed multiple applications including supplementary information to the traditional inventory reporting.
