Glasgow City Region Adaptation Strategy - report

What needs to happen:

10.1 Enhanced adaptation research through open invitation to collaborate on publicly available research priorities with Glasgow City Region promoted as a place for research and experimentation on climate change adaptation. Climate Ready Clyde will work with others to develop, agree and publish a list of research priorities, reach out to relevant organizations and individuals, and provide support to funding bids where there is a strong prospect to move us forward on understanding risks and implementing adaptation, and will link academics to stakeholder programmes. Early research priorities for the programme include synergies and trade-offs with the region’s path to net-zero, sectoral gaps such as the natural and built environments, and cross-cutting issues such as climate justice. 10.2 Glasgow City Region established as a living lab for climate adaptation providing a platform for academics to conduct research into climate resilience and adaptation in practice, using our resources, services and assets. This will provide Glasgow City Region with a greater understanding of their effectiveness, as well as providing wider benefits for the UK and internationally. 10.3 Convene an Expert Advisory Committee on Adaptation , to provide actionable advice to actors in Glasgow City Region to ensure better evidenced decision-making. This should draw on the leading adaptation expertise already in Glasgow City Region, with the role and remit being shaped and informed by the region’s City of Science and Innovation group, universities and Glasgow City Region. To support the process, the Committee should run a process to identify and develop the relevant questions from regional policy makers, and to commission small research pieces to inform the work. Over time, this process should also lead to higher impact research on adaptation. The proposals should be developed working closely with ClimateXChange to build on their experience of connecting research and policy.
