Adapting to Climate Change in Hong Kong

- In the shadows of Typhoon Manghkhut and release of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report, what does the future of climate change look like? 

- With growing scientific opinion that an increase of 1.5°C in the average global temperature is no longer achievable, and that we are on track for 3°C, what can we do to avoid this? 

With an increasing demand on our buildings and infrastructure, what can we do to adapt to our new climate?

Join us as we look at the challenges and opportunities for Hong Kong, and across the globe, over the coming decades. We will share our research on climate change scenarios and discuss approaches to mitigate the associated impacts on urban planning and developments. We will provide an overview of what Cundall is doing to minimise our own impact, and the impact of our projects through the lens of different disciplines and share the outcome of our recent research on this subject.
