Invitation to submit photos for major climate report

Photographers are invited to submit images for inclusion in a major scientific report on climate change in the UK and around the world.

The 3rd UK Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA3) Evidence Report will include pictures highlighting "how climate change is affecting the landscape and bringing risks to how we live".

The report, commissioned by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), is being prepared by a team of experts led by the University of Exeter in partnership with the Met Office.

"We would like to include selected photographs of events or places that illustrate current or potential future impacts of climate change in the four countries of the UK, to provide meaningful context for our research and findings," said Professor Richard Betts, of the University of Exeter and the Met Office Hadley Centre.

"We are examining the risks and opportunities that changes in UK climate and extreme weather bring to the natural environment, infrastructure, health, communities, the built environment, business and industry, along with the implications for the UK of climate change elsewhere in the world.

"Photographs illustrating the causes of climate change and measures to address this by moving to a net-zero economy would also be of interest."

Professor Betts, a member of Exeter's Global Systems Institute, added: "If you would like to submit photographs that can give a powerful, visual and thought-provoking message to support our writing, we would love to hear from you."

Images must be submitted by 20 November.

Photographers whose work has been chosen will be contacted before the CCRA3 Evidence Report is finished.
