Climate Change Adaptation

CCA intro image
Climate Change leading to higher temperatures, changing precipitation patterns and sea level rise is a reality in Scotland.

The most obvious Climate Change impact for Glasgow and the Clyde Valley (GCV) is flooding. We already experience more frequent, intense rainfall events, a trend that is predicted to continue. Our drainage systems are often already close to capacity and unable to cope with the intensity of rainfall shed from roads and buildings in urban areas.

The resultant flooding can have a hugely negative impact on our towns and cities both in terms of the economic cost of repairing damaged infrastructure and lost productivity and also on the health and well-being of residents.

Planning to adapt the GCV, making it more resilient to the changing climate, is a necessity if it is to remain a successful City Region. The Green Network can and should play a major role in providing effective and efficient adaptive capacity and in ensuring future Climate Change resilience.
