Climate projections are an important tool in assessing the impacts climate change will have.

We have produced two forward-looking reports that provide a firm evidence base for what we know about future temperature and precipitation based on best available climate science. They are a complement to Sniffer’s climate trends handbook 

The information in the reports and the at-a-glance presentation will be useful for:

  • helping organisations prepare their Local Climate Impacts Profile (LCLIP’s)
  • helping organisations undertake their Climate Risk and Vulnerability Assessments
  • helping to justify collaborative partnership working on shared issues (e.g. Climate Ready Clyde)
  • informing investment decisions
  • informing spatial strategy and policy direction within emerging development plans
  • identifying business risk and opportunities
  • preparing developer toolkits for adaptation
  • training and capacity building
  • identifying future research needs
  • preparing briefings
