Glasgow City Region Adaptation Strategy - report

Glasgow City Region Climate Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan

3.2 Flagship Actions A cornerstone of this change is committing to 16 Flagship Actions for Glasgow City Region. These are large- scale, high-ambition actions where there is strong consensus on the need for progress, and a recognition of the whole systems approach that is required to address core, underlying challenges. The actions are aligned with our region’s vision of a Glasgow City Region that flourishes in a future climate, and its associated Theory of Change. Despite being at a formative stage, they represent a significant, step change from business as usual, designed to address systemic challenges, create the conditions for change and inspire further action. The actions, their type and the main spheres of actors are show below:
