In the run-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), we asked our researchers to tell us about their work and the challenges of tackling climate change.

Professor Clive Potter is a professor at Imperial College in London, and his research is in environmental public policy and management.

Clive’s interests lie in how we can manage our trees, woods and forests, to capture carbon and help nature recover, and he has also recently become an ambassador for the UK Future Treescapes Programme.

Clive says:

I have a great confidence that high quality research of this type will have a real contribution to make to the climate change agenda.
