Continue to find out more about any less well understood risks while you carry out this step. Adaptation actions manage your climate risks to a level that is acceptable to your organisation, and […]

What am I evaluating?

Setting clear boundaries around what you are going to evaluate (and what you are not) will help you to select the most appropriate methodology. There is a huge range of possible adaptation interventions for all sectors, responding to a number of impacts (heat, rainfall, wind speed, sea level rise, etc.). Be sure to account for […]

Engaging with climate services providers

This project brings together UK providers and purveyors of climate services to understand how best to develop the climate services market, and influence and engage with national and European climate services initiatives. Supported by NERC, UKCIP held workshops across the UK, organised in partnership with Climate NI, Climate Ready, Adaptation Scotland, ClimateXChange, Natural Resources Wales […]

Adaptation challenges

This section will help you to: Understand how specific traits of climate adaptation can make evaluation challenging, and how you can overcome these challenges. Identify examples, good practice and techniques which may help ensure your evaluation is robust in the context of climate change. Prioritise your evaluation activities, recognising that evaluations need to be proportionate […]

LCLIP: Local Climate Impacts Profile

LCLIP is a simple tool designed to help organisations to assess their exposure to the weather. It can be used as a standalone tool, or as a step in a risk-based framework such as the Adaptation Wizard. The LCLIP process shows how prepared an organisation is to deal with severe weather events. For example, one […]
