Training, support and additional resources

The Adaptation Capability Framework is complemented by a suite of relevant training and support, and we will be adding more resources throughout the year.

We will be hosting a series of webinars to introduce users to the Adaptation Capability Framework, and understand how it can be used to build organisational capacity across the four capabilities to ensure that public sector organisations are adapting to climate change. We will also be covering some of the key concepts of climate change adaptation, and what the UK Climate Projections 2019 (UKCP19) mean for Scotland. Sign up for the Adaptation Scotland Newsletter to get updates on the webinars.

For ongoing support and opportunities to attend face to face training you can join the Adaptation Learning Exchange by contacting adaptationscotland@sniffer.org.uk.
