Events during 2009
The Centre for Science and Policy and the Cambridge Conservation Initiative are planning a joint workshop for DEFRA on the Valuation of Ecosystems to take place in Cambridge on 3 September 2009.
The University of Cambridge is to host an international workshop on the "Implications of Climate Change and Variability on African Water Resources".
This workshop will examine the phenomenon of catastrophe and challenge the assumptions of unpredictability. Wide ranges of potential causes of extreme disruption for society and the economy as well as the approaches to quantifying and comparing different threats will be explored.
