In November Glasgow launched its ‘Climate Ready Clyde’ plans. The plans sClimateReadyClydeSmallhould help the city adapt to the changing climate and mitigate against the increased risk of flooding caused by increased rainfall and rising sea levels.

The project has been initiated by Adaptation Scotland and is a partnership approach between the public, private and third sectors and local communities.

Plans include the creation of a seven lochs a wetland park project. Wetland creation and management should reduce flood risk in areas downstream of the park. More trees, plants and green spaces will be introduced to the city to help absorb rainwater and also to keep places cool as temperatures rise.

Read the plans on Adaptation Scotland’s website.
