Glasgow City Region Climate Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan
and partnership to make our places more climate resilient in a just transition. And it draws on our history of transformation: from the ‘dear green place’ and the vision of New Lanark, to industrial powerhouse, from industrial decline to a European Capital of Culture, host of the Commonwealth Games and leading centre for wind energy and storage at Whitelee. As such, we believe it offers a compelling model for the regional transition that we and all other cities and regions around the world, must go through in the coming decade. Ambitious action on mitigation started our next regional transition, so it’s only right we honour the Paris Agreement by mirroring it with an equally ambitious approach to adaptation and resilience. As host city region for COP26, our citizens deserve nothing less. But such an approach will only succeed if we move together.
The world is watching – now it is time for every organization, community and business to deliver together.
