News from Adaptation Scotland

Applications are now open for Adaptation Scotland's new community engagement pioneer project.

Scotland’s climate is changing with widespread impacts for people, nature and business. The Adaptation Scotland programme provides advice and support to help organisations, businesses and communities prepare for, and build resilience to these impacts.

Support and funding of up to £10,000 is being offered for one Community Engagement Pioneer Project to be developed and run as part of the Adaptation Scotland programme between September 2017 – March 2018.

This opportunity is open to all organisations and community groups based in Scotland. This includes public, private and third sector organisations and community groups based around particular locations and/or interests.

Why apply?

Climate change is already beginning to affect communities across Scotland. Summers are becoming hotter and drier, winters are becoming wetter and milder, and our growing season is getting longer. By working together, we can help communities take account of these changes and ensure the places where we all live, work and play are climate ready.

Pioneer projects provide a unique space for collaboration, enabling partners to develop a shared understanding of adaptation challenges and opportunities, and develop tools, resources and actions to address these.

The deadline for applications is Friday 11 August 2017.
