Academic panel

The Academic Panel reviews the written briefings created for assembly members to support the Expert Leads in ensuring they are balanced, accurate and comprehensive.

The Expert Leads have also drawn on the expertise of individual members of the Panel to inform their work.

Panel members were chosen on the basis of their expertise on areas of climate change, that Parliament and the Expert Leads felt Climate Assembly UK should examine.

An initial list of members was drawn up by a climate change specialist in the Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology (POST) in Summer 2019. The Climate Assembly UK team at Parliament then worked with the Expert Leads to ensure that this group met the above criteria.
