Introduction

Climate change is already presenting many risks – and some opportunities – to our homes, our businesses and our way of life in the Glasgow City Region, affecting people, our landscapes, our environment and our economy. Our climate is projected to change further, despite our existing efforts to reduce Scotland’s carbon emissions. We are likely to see:

These hazards could cause significant damage to the Glasgow City Region. The City Region has started to manage these climate risks but much more is required. The good news is that Climate Ready Clyde – a cross-sector initiative funded by 15 member organisations and supported by the Scottish Government – recognises these challenges and is committed to addressing them with an inclusive and fair approach. We must act fast.

Our vision:

‘A Glasgow city region that flourishes in a future climate’

To help deliver this vision Climate Ready Clyde has been preparing the region’s first Climate Adaptation Strategy. This will provide a guide to enable public and private organisations, businesses, communities and individuals to work together to build a flourishing City Region. We are now consulting on this draft, and are keen to hear your views on the approach we are taking, as well as your experience of the effects of extreme weather and climate change. This essential part of the process will make the strategy stronger and ensure it belongs to us all: we need your opinion and expertise.

The consultation takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and your responses will feed into the final version of the strategy. We may use anonymous responses, but if you don’t want your comments to be published in any form you can tell us and we will only use them for background information. The consultation closes on 24th December 2020 at 5pm.
