A Russian-British joint scientific seminar “Climate Change: Risks to human welfare and infrastructure" was held in Moscow.

March 19, 2015 at the Residence of the British Ambassador in Moscow was held a joint Russian-British scientific seminar "Climate Change: Risks to human welfare and infrastructure," which was attended by Deputy Directors of the FBE “SPbFRI” A.V. Konstantinov and T.S. Koroleva.

At the workshop, scientists from the UK taking part in the program AVOID2, which is funded by the UK government, and Russian scientists from the Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring Agency Rosshydromet, Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and the Graduate Schools presented their research findings in the field of climate change. Participants discussed the risks associated with climate change, the economic consequences of these changes, issues of adaptation and mitigation of climate, as well as measures aimed at preventing the dangers of climate change. British and Russian scientists were able to directly discuss climate issues and identify possible areas for joint research and cooperation in preparation for the UN Climate Change Conference to be held in Paris at the end of 2015. The workshop also aims to increase awareness in society and the media on the issue of climate change.
