Glasgow City Region Climate Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan

Flagship Action 9: Roadmap to an adaptation forum on infrastructure and utilities

Intention Partners will develop a roadmap to establish an Adaptation Forum on Infrastructure and Utilities to facilitate debate, discussion and exchange, as part of managing critical climate risks to infrastructure and utilities across Glasgow City Region. The group offers the opportunity for strategic oversight, to identify priority issues, as well as addressing practical, immediate concerns. Outcomes Through shared learning and common approaches in resilience and adaptation surveys of particular sites and operations, it is more possible to identify risk and vulnerabilities where increased resilience measures will be necessary. Critical assets, operations and services, on which the people, society and economy of Glasgow City Region rely will become more climate resilient and designed with future climate risks in mind, to avoid future lock in. Internal training on the CRC climate risk tool can look to build standardized requirements into major projects, site and network maintenance and new property construction. The connection to Flagship Action 6, to interact with and support development of the climate resilient principles and guidelines will be key. Supporting and enabling mechanisms • Adaptation Reporting Power – requires organizations to assess and report on their risks and opportunities every five years. • Infrastructure Operators Adaptation Forum – the UK forum for national infrastructure operators also helps develop best practice in relation to climate risk assessment and adaptation planning for infrastructure.

Supports delivery of the following Adaptation Strategy interventions 8

Key partners SGN, SPEN, Scottish Water, telecoms providers, Glasgow City Region Infrastructure Portfolio, all eight local authorities.
