Climate Ready Clyde has developed Glasgow City Region’s first Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan. Launched in June 2021, ahead of COP26 in Glasgow.

The Strategy aims to ensure Glasgow City Region’s economy, society and environment is not only prepared for, but continues to flourish in the face of the impacts arising from the climate crisis.

Glasgow is expected to experience warmer, wetter winters and drier, hotter summers and the Strategy actively seeks to create a more fair, just and inclusive City Region as part of the climate adaptation process. greenspace scotland are recognised as a crucial collaborator along with another 14 regional and national organisations.

The Strategy:

  • outlines the processes and early interventions needed to manage climate risks and realise opportunities in line with our Theory of Change
  • provides a strategic framework for adaptation in and by the Glasgow City Region that fits alongside and supports key plans, policies and activities to enable delivery
  • sets out how we will deepen and expand collaboration and collective impact by working together and engaging, equipping and enabling citizens and organizations to play a role in realising the vision
  • sets out how progress in increasing climate resilience will be monitored, evaluated and learnt from to improve policies, strategies, programmes and projects.

The Strategy is supported by the Action Plan which contains the concrete actions being taken in the City Region between 2020 and 2025 that will move us towards our vision.
