- Civil and Environmental Engineer, Newcastle University
Through the Tyndall Centre Cities Research Programme, researchers from seven universities and high profile stakeholders have developed an Urban Integrated Assessment Facility (UIAF). This city-scale assessment tool simulates the effects of long term changes in urban areas and can be used to test strategies for adaptation to and mitigation of climate change. In this talk, Tyndall Centre Deputy Director Jim Hall explains the various components of the UIAF and how they have been integrated to answer questions of policy relevance to stakeholders in London.
