2021 Virtual Nobel-Inspired Lecture: Adapting to Climate Change – What does the science say?

2021 Virtual Nobel-Inspired Lecture: Adapting to Climate Change – What does the science say?

Climate change has been described as the defining crisis of our time. Yet, the world is still not on track to achieve international  climate commitments. With unprecedented events such as wildfires and higher than normal temperatures across many countries, the impact of climate change is being felt in every corner of the world.

COVID-19 has also brought on many challenges that will negatively affect the global momentum in reducing the impact of climate change. With all of these compounding  issues, and in light of the upcoming  26th  UN Climate Change Conference, the NRF and the Embassy of Sweden in Pretoria invite you to the 2021  Nobel Inspired Webinar Lecture.

The lecture, entitled Adapting to Climate Change – What does the science say?, will feature presentations by two eminent researchers in the field:

  • Professor Francois Engelbrecht, Professor of Climatology at the Wits Global Change Institute (wGCI), and affiliated to the School of Geography, Archaeology and Environmental Studies (GAES) at the University  of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
  • Professor Victor Galaz, Associate Professor in Political Science; Deputy Director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University; and Programme Director of the Beijer Institute’s Governance, Technology and Complexity Programme.

The presentations will be followed by a conversation and audience participation moderated by Ms Naledi Moleo.
