ARCHIVE: The UK Climate Impacts Programme
The UK Climate Impacts Programme (UKCIP) is an advisory service helping organisations make decisions on adapting to climate change. UKCIP:
- provides a range of tools to help others understand the possible impacts of climate change, including a set of scenarios that show how our climate might change at a regional and national level
- offers advice on adaptation
- assists with research.
UKCIP focuses on making complex scientific information understandable and useful to stakeholders. Their website is an excellent information source if you want to find out about the future climate of the UK and how to adapt.
UKCIP also produces a large number of publications every year. We currently contribute around £900,000 a year to UKCIP.
Tools to help you adapt
The UK Climate Impacts Programme provides a range of tools and guidance that can be used to help organisations identify how they might be affected by climate change and what they can do to minimise their risks or exploit the opportunities.
The tools include:
- an Adaptation Wizard to guide users through the first stages of thinking about adaptation
- projections of climate change for the UK
- socio-economic scenarios
- a database of adaptation case studies.
You can find more information and additional tools and guidance by visiting the UKCIP website.
