Sir James Bevan
Chief Executive of the Environment Agency

Previous roles included the UK High Commissioner to India, Chief Operating Officer of the UK Foreign Office, and Visiting Fellow at the Center for International Affairs, Harvard. The Environment Agency is focused on creating a better place for people and wildlife, protecting communities from flooding and responding to environmental incidents. In this, the 27th Gordon Manley Lecture, Sir James will speak on the current climate emergency, reflecting on where we are, and on how the government, the public and industry can respond together. A reception in the Queen's Building foyer will follow the lecture.
