Katherine Beckmann

I work with the Adaptation Team of Scottish Government’s ClimateXChange programme (CXC).  CXC addresses a wide range of climate topics to support policy makers in Scottish Government and my work is focused on

1. Identifying contextual, ‘enabling frameworks’ for adaptation

2. Identifying the role that government policy has in creating and improving the context so as to promote resilience and adaptation action

3.  Demonstration of adaptation (where possible).   See http://www.climatexchange.org.uk/index.php/cxc-work/cxc-adaptation

4. Supporting the development and use of indicators of adaptation for Scotland, particularly for the Built Environment.

I have a background in natural sciences, resource management and knowledge exchange.  I hold two science degrees, and am a member of one of the Business Networks run by Cambridge Programme for Industry.
