- Identify simple, quick actions that you can take
forward with partner organisations to help develop collaborative working. This may include sharing data and information
about climate impacts, methods for assessing climate risks and case studies of
- Hold a meeting where partners can share
information about their organisational priorities and opportunities to progress
adaptation work. As part of this meeting, identify areas of shared interest and
work to share information about adaptation priorities and interests can lead to
immediate opportunities to develop demonstration or pilot projects. This could
include developing joint guidance on specific aspects of adapting to climate
change or pooling resources and expertise to trial on the ground adaptation
actions such as rain gardens or green walls.
- Identify whether there is interest from partners
in developing two or three longer term opportunities to collaborate on
adaptation. Consider developing basic project outlines and scoping out
potential funders and opportunities to influence progress and
implementation. It is often easier to
identify funding and take up new funding opportunities as they emerge if you
have a basic project outline in place.
- Work together to engage more partner
organisations. Identify organisations that could make a significant
contribution to and benefit from partnership working and share contacts and
ideas for involving them in partnership working.
