School of Geography contribution to current debates

The school is contributing new and important evidence to current debates on climate change in the lead-up to international negotiations at the United Nations COP26 climate meeting in Glasgow later this year. This month, ahead of World Water Day, Simon Gosling co-authored a paper published in Science that demonstrates for the first time that human climate change is the cause of trends in extreme river flows worldwide. The study underscores the importance of making ambitious new commitments to reducing global greenhouse gas emissions at COP26. Simon Gosling co-coordinated the suite of hydrological model simulations used in the study. Read the press release.


Evidence submitted by Sarah Hall and Martin Heneghan from their ESRC project to the House of Lords EU committee was cited in their report Beyond Brexit: trade in services.
