Submission to Climate Change, Development and COP26





The Institute for Global Sustainable Development is a research institute at the University of Warwick.  It works in partnership with researchers, practitioners and community members in low- and middle-income countries to deliver impactful research that directly supports adaptation and resilience to the effects of climate change.  We have a particular expertise in research that supports resilience to extreme weather events that have had increasing frequency due to climate change, such as flooding and landslides.


We welcome the International Development Committee’s focus on climate change, development and COP26 and the opportunity to provide information to support the enquiry.
