Aligned with Climate Ready Clyde, Sniffer are supporting the Open University and Ming-Chuan University in Taiwan to undertake British Academy-funded research in Glasgow City and Taipei. The research aims to understand how communities in both cities have experienced extreme hot weather, and how trees and green spaces might help to reduce heat risk in the […]
One of the stretch targets of the Glasgow City Region Climate Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan is to increase the resilience of over 140,000 of the region’s most vulnerable people to the impacts of climate change.
To help monitor progress against this target, and to help decision-makers across the City Region to prioritise adaptation action where it is most needed, we have published a new Glasgow City Region Climate Vulnerability Map.
Climate Ready Clyde is involved in the steering group for the University of Strathclyde’s Climate Neutral, Climate Resilient Innovation District for Glasgow. Transforming our city and region to make it climate resilient and carbon neutral is going to take some radical thinking and decision making. The University of Strathclyde is leading a significant piece of […]

The final objective of COACCH is to produce an improved downscaled […]
Climate Ready Clyde is participating as a case study in OpenCLIM (Open Climate Impacts Modelling Framework). OpenCLIM is a project led by the Tyndall Centre on Climate Change, designed to support UK assessment of climate risks and adaptation, by developing and applying an integrated impact assessment model. It is a £2m project funded by the […]
