ClimateXChange carries out a wide range of research focussed on adapting to climate change and reducing emissions.
Below are some of the currently active projects, you can view more on the Projects page. Visit the Publications Library for access to all of our research publications.
Drought, as a significant risk to Scottish forests, is likely to be exacerbated by the changing climate. This report summarises the current state of research on drought risk, describes ongoing projects and identifies knowledge gaps and potential research directions.
This report assesses the impact of working from home (WFH) in Scotland. WFH has the potential to reduce carbon emissions associated with commuting and office space, but must be balanced against an expected increase in emissions in the home.
This project reviews current knowledge of the potential for carbon sequestration in key Scottish upland open habitats and identifies the key drivers of change. Upland soils play a vital role in regulating greenhouse gas emissions.
Aligning science and policy is a well-known challenge. Scientists and policy-makers often have different goals, priorities and measures of success. CXC’s aim is to bring the two together to create policies and governance informed by the best available evidence.
