Climate Ready Clyde – Glasgow City Council
Posted on 26th June, 2017
The Climate Ready Clyde vision for a city-region adapted to climate change was launched in November 2013.
The other side of the carbon coin is local adaptation to the predicted and inevitable impacts of global climate change. Glasgow is now at the forefront of action to manage excess surface water and flooding and to engage with communities to ensure that they and the city are climate ready. It has led the development of a city-regional approach, acknowledging that global climate change is no respecter of Scottish local government boundaries. This has been recognised by our peers across the EU in their decision to bring the next European Climate Change Adaptation conference to Glasgow in June 2017.
