Speaker information

Professor D'Maris Coffman, UCL | The Bartlett School of Construction and Proj, Professor D’Maris Coffman holds a Chair in Economics and Finance of the Built Environment at UCL’s Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment and is Director of The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management. She joined UCL from the University of Cambridge in September 2014 as a Senior Lecturer in Economics and Finance of the Built Environment.

Now and in the future, enormous infrastructure investment will be required to combat climate change and mitigate its effects on human populations. Our understanding of how infrastructure investment can facilitate structural economic change needs renewed methodological rigour and robust empirical studies.

A special report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - Global Warming of 1.5°C - represents an urgent call to action, emphasising the need to decarbonise the transport and energy sectors.

This inaugural lecture with Professor D'Maris Coffman - Director of The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management - will explore new approaches to understanding unmet demand for infrastructure provision, placing infrastructure at the centre of debates about how to effect the low carbon transition.

The lecture will begin at 18:30 and will be followed by a networking reception from 19:30.
