UK Universities Climate Network new Paper - Assessing climate risk and strengthening resilience for UK Higher & Further Education Institutions
This new paper from the UK Universities Climate Network will help higher and further education institutions to develop processes to assess their risk to their current and future climate risks, put in place plans to adapt to these risks, and identify opportunities to strengthen their resilience. A set of six case studies illustrate how UK institutions are assessing climate risk and building resilience and the additional benefits that can leveraged from undertaking these activities. Authored by 19 experts from across 13 institutions, the guidance draws on the latest evidence and is intended to be a valuable resource for actors and decision makers within these institutions, with applicability beyond sector boundaries. You can access the paper and the full set of case studies on the UUCN website here.
