The Centre for Integrated Research into Risk and Resillience invites you to join us online for the CIRRR 2023 Christmas Lecture.

Mark Pelling and CIRRR Directors Helen Adams and Tom Matthews will provide a critical take on some of the challenges to urban sustainability towards the end of the century.

A particular focus will be on the interaction between the potential for vulnerability reduction, limits to adaptation, and the non-material dimensions of living with climate change.

 About the CIRR

The Centre for Integrated Research on Risk and Resilience (CIRRR) brings together researchers from across disciplines to explore transformational responses to climate risk reduction.

Drawing on resilience to understand the related social, political and economic underpinnings of the climate threats, CIRRR aims to improve entry points for policymakers and practitioners to engage in transformational adaptation pathways and local priorities to drive decision-making.
