Formally launched at the ECCA 2017 Conference, Climate Ready Clyde is a cross-sector partnership initiative to adapt to a changing climate, making Glasgow City Region a better place to live, work and do business.
10 partners are pooling their resources, alongside the Scottish Government, to assess the risks and opportunities from rising temperatures and seas and heavier rainfall, and develop a strategy and action plan.

The approach was showcased at ECCA as one of the leading activities in Scotland, with significant interest from all over the world about how adaptation is part of the City Region's approach to economic and social development.
The Scotsman also covered it as part of a piece on the wider changes needed for adaptation. The secretariat is now beginning the process of reviewing evidence of climate risks and opportunities before engaging partners more widely.
