Welcome to the Climate Ready Places web resource.

Over the last 50 years Scotland has seen a significant change in climate – to warmer and wetter weather with more extreme weather events. This trend is set to continue. The aim of this website is to get people thinking about Scotland becoming climate ready. What would we do? What would it look like? The ideas are generated from people working on adaptation across Scotland and in many different sectors. We asked them to imagine ‘Scottish’ places adapting to climate change and what they would look like. We created six typical Scottish places – Uplands, Lowlands, Coast, Infrastructure, Suburbs and City, and show possible adaptation.

Please remember that this is a collection of ideas – it is not prescriptive, it is not a plan. There will be many more ways to get your place climate ready. Hopefully you will have ideas of your own!
