Glasgow City Region Adaptation Strategy - report

2.5 Strategic interventions

For Glasgow City Region to flourish in our future climate, Glasgow City Region’s businesses, communities and institutions must work to deliver a number of interventions. By an intervention we mean:

“A strategic package of activities designed to achieve intermediate outcomes and contribute to our long-term outcomes.”

The interventions have been written to both respond to near-term risks and to bring about the long-term outcomes in the Theory of Change. Rather than working in silos, each intervention delivers activities which contribute to achieving multiple outcomes simultaneously. The mapping of these is shown in detail in the technical annexes. In terms of managing climate risks, each intervention has been designed to address one or more of following priorities for early adaptation: • to implement early, low and no-regret adaptation to address current risks and build early resilience • to intervene early in decisions that have long lifetimes (notably land use and infrastructure) with climate smart development • to start planning for the longer term using an adaptive management framework (i.e. using an iterative approach that recognizes uncertainty) that includes more transformational actions. 12

The interventions also address the priorities identified in the Climate Risk and Opportunity Assessment – see Figure 17.
