CCE Fireside Chat: How digitalisation can help us adapt to climate change

Thursday 27 April, 6:00 to 7:30 pm, Seminar A

Join us for this Fireside Chat with CCE Hoffmann Fellow – Dr Daoping Wang. Dr Wang, along with Department of Land Economy PhD researcher Qian-Cheng Wang will be chatting with Harriet Harthan, Head of Content, CCE about how digitalisation can help us adapt to climate change.

The effects of climate change are increasingly transforming human living environments. Without sufficient mitigation actions, the severity of projected climate-related hazards will significantly increase in the future. By providing more efficient, rapid, and reliable risk monitoring and assessment, enabling better decision-making based on quantitative, actionable indicators, emerging digital technologies can play an important role in climate change adaptation.

  • What are the major climate change adaptation challenges?
  • How can digital technologies help?
  • What governance innovations are needed for large-scale deployment of such digital technologies?

Dr Daoping Wang will present some case study findings about these issues in this Fireside Chat. Qian-Cheng Wang will focus on digital technologies and urban planning.

    Daoping is a Hoffmann Fellow at the Centre for Climate Engagement. He is interested in exploring application of AI technologies in climate risk assessment and adaptation. He is also working with CCE and the World Economic Forum to transfer knowledge about global climate governance to policymakers, stakeholders, and the general public. Before joining Cambridge, Daoping received a PhD in Economics from the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics.
  • Qiancheng Wang, Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge
    Qiancheng is a PhD student in Land Economy since 2020. He is interested in topics about sustainable urban development and is working on a new spatial equilibrium model for quantifying the environmental impacts of alternative urban spatial planning strategies for fast-growing city regions. Before joining in Land Economy, Qiancheng obtained his MPhil in Architecture and Urban Studies at the Department of Architecture and his BSc (Hons) in Building Engineering and Management with a Minor in Applied Mathematics at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. During his undergraduate and master’s studies, Qiancheng’s works covered energy-efficient building systems, sustainable construction methods and pro-environmental behaviours. His PhD research is financially supported by both China Scholarship Council and Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust.
