Glasgow City Region Adaptation Strategy - report

Glasgow City Region Climate Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan

What needs to happen:

1.1 A detailed review of the institutional landscape needed for adaptation which identifies ways of enhancing governance for adaptation, including within and between existing institutions, as well as whether new ones are needed. Such a review also needs to consider wider trends shaping governance, how to improve leadership opportunities and representation for communities and minorities, and how to meaningfully engage them in the process to enhance coordination and delivery of adaptation. It needs to account for the changing civic space and the shifting role of the region, private sector and technological advances. 1.2 A broader coalition of actors mobilized to deliver the Strategy with new public, private and third sector actors and communities engaged in discussing how to increase our adaptation effectiveness. Such as approach should be guided by the use of ‘keystone’ actors – those who hold an importance that goes beyond their own organization and instead whose actions have the potential to create wider change across the region, or relevant systems. 1.3 Adaptation leadership at all levels that is nurtured and developed where all those involved (public sector, trade and professional networks, politicians and community leaders) better understand the specific challenges associated with adaptation activity, such as in relation to finance, solutions, evidence and social change. This could be through the development and rollout of a specific adaptation leaders programme. 1.4 News, arts, media and cultural organizations telling stories about the climate crisis and opportunities to adapt with the cultural sector and media institutions supported in raising public awareness of the risks of climate change in Glasgow City Region, playing a key role as hubs for community building and resilience, and celebrating adaptation successes of those taking action across the region. This should focus both on ensuring the mainstream media raise awareness, as well as on avenues for allowing people to tell their own stories of how climate risks are affecting them, and adaptation is improving their lives as a mechanism for empowerment.
