I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to improve their climate literacy so as to understand the projected impacts from the expanding climate crisis and how to adapt their workplaces in the face of these impacts.

As ever increasing climate chaos is making adaptation critical, these barriers are standing in the way of the needed adaptation:

  • limited resources
  • lack of private sector & citizen engagement
  • insufficient finance
  • low climate literacy
  • lack of political commitment
  • limited adaptation research
  • slow and low uptake of adaptation science
  • low sense of urgency

We are going to get caught completely off guard!
