The RIBA Gulf Chapter’s ongoing ‘Sustainable Development Series’ commences its build-up to the United Nations’ COP28 (to be held in the UAE later this year) with the sustainability expert and acclaimed author Mina Hasman, who will be introducing her recently published book - the RIBA Climate Guide - which contextualises the climate emergency within the built environment. 

Mapping out the essential background knowledge around climate science, international agreements, legislations, commitments, and roadmaps, the RIBA Climate Guide aims to equip all built-environment professionals with the key information required to halt climate change and mitigate its impacts in their day-to-day practice.

This book features images and original illustrations, themed across sections, to address the fundamental elements and competencies for creating an integrated, sustainable design and a delivery framework that can be implemented within practice. Organised around six overarching topics of the Climate Framework - Human Factors, Circular Economy, Energy and Carbon, Water, Ecology and Biodiversity, Connectivity and Transport - the Guide will be introduced by Hasman. This introduction will be followed by a panel debate with global industry sustainability experts, and the session will close with questions and answers with the live audience.
