In this episode of Know Your Stuff, we talk with Dr. Kimberly Nicholas, Sustainability Scientist at Lund University (Sweden) about the newest IPCC report ‘Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability’. We elaborate on the main findings of the report, which focuses on impacts to people and nature. We also come about climate adaptation, and how we adapt to climate change in the Global North versus the Global South. Finally, we talk about what we can all do to take action.
