Glasgow City Region Adaptation Strategy - report

What needs to happen:

11.1 Adopt a climate smart regional economic development approach with a strategic approach that sets out to improve the resilience of the Glasgow City Region’s economy as part of the revised regional economy strategy. This should focus on climate-smart approach, assessing what is needed to help realize opportunities and support growth of the region’s adaptation sector. 11.2 Delivery of a just, climate resilient transition which nurtures adaptation skills broadening the concept of a just transition to adaptation, by identifying sectors, businesses locations and workers who are most vulnerable to climate change and developing plans to support them to adapt, as well as those sectors that will open up. This should also identify the skills requirements for the adaptation economy and develop them, as well as the potential to provide opportunities for those persistently excluded from employment, such as ex-offenders or those subject to community payback orders. 11.3 Climate-resilient supply chains, as part of a net-zero, circular economy with a collaborative approach involving Circular Glasgow, Zero Waste Scotland, Scottish Enterprise and others to ensure that the shift to a decarbonized and circular supply chain also increases resilience to climate change and considers associated justice and equity issues. 11.4 An SME support plan with Scottish Enterprise, FSB, Adaptation Scotland and others developing a package to support SMEs to both become resilient to the impacts of climate change across all aspects of their operations. This will focus on practical actions that can be taken by all, as well as more detailed services in future.
