Roger Street

Honorary Research Associate


Roger has an MSc in Physics from the University of Toronto and came to UKCIP in January 2006 after working over 32 years with the Canadian federal government. Much of his work focused on climate, climate impacts and adaptation. These included working within the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change beginning with its first assessment report, leadership of the Canada Country Study, and involvement with the US National Assessment on climate change impacts. As UKCIP Technical Director, Roger leads the Programme’s technical and scientific work aimed at guiding impacts and adaptation studies, and at developing and delivering new supportive resources and tools, including the next set of UKCIP climate scenarios.
