The potential impact from climate change and biodiversity loss includes large-scale food insecurity, water insecurity, health insecurity, infrastructure insecurity and energy insecurity.
Trusted climate data is the key component in the world's climate change and biodiversity loss risk mitigation.
Use of technologies and tools such as drones, camera traps, acoustic monitoring, remote sensing, AI and Machine Learning to collect valuable climate change data is standard. Data is often collected, stored, processed and shared by organisations who don’t fully understand cyber-attacks, threat actors, threat sources, their motives and capabilities.
“The severity of the risks we face must not be underestimated. These risks will not disappear as the world moves to Net Zero; many of them are already locked in. By better understanding and preparing for the coming changes, the UK can prosper, protecting its people, its economy, and its natural environment. A detailed, effective action plan that prepares the UK for climate change is now essential and needed urgently.”
