Maximising UK adaptation to climate change hub

This UKRI funding opportunity is part of the Maximising UK adaptation to climate change Programme. The programme is co-funded by UKRI and Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). It has been co-designed by UKRI, Defra, the Met Office and the Climate Change Committee.

The broader programme consists of two strands of commissioning activity:

  1. a climate change adaptation hub – coordination and translation
  2. a series of research projects – new transdisciplinary knowledge for UK climate adaptation

The hub will coalesce the skills and expertise needed from across relevant sectors, to aid the development and where possible, implementation, of a national climate change adaptation plan. Working closely with policy stakeholders the hub will synthesise relevant research, evidence and impact relating to climate change risk and vulnerability and translate this into information on what works in terms of climate adaptation at the local and national scale.
