Glasgow City Region Adaptation Strategy - report

Glasgow City Region Climate Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan

What needs to happen:

5.1 Learning by doing – building in active reflection and learning process with Climate Ready Clyde encouraging all those involved in delivery of the Strategy to draw on local and cultural knowledge (along with other more traditional technical and academic knowledge), adopt active reflection and learning, and document and share their experiences to support others facing similar challenges. 5.2 Encourage large organizations to sign up to relevant international reporting initiatives such as the International Sustainable Campus Network, Global Covenant of Mayors on Climate and Energy and not-for-profit disclosure organisation CDP, reporting our progress not just nationally, but under the major global reporting frameworks, to share learning and collaborate on effectiveness and increase the region’s visibility of our work. 5.3 Alignment of planning assumptions between domestic adaptation planning and the emerging TCFD/investor regimes with mature relationships between public institutions with those working to support private sector reporting under TCFD. A key part of this is ensuring public planning assumptions, Glasgow City Region’s risks and adaptation action are accurately reflected in risk models. 5.4 Learning and knowledge exchange with other cities and regions working through the international climate networks to develop new partnership and relationships to learn from progress and support further efforts in adaptation. The focus should be on delta cities and regions with comparable risks, with an emphasis on climate vulnerable countries, as well as continuing to exchange knowledge through the Adaptation Scotland programme.
