UK Climate Impacts Programme (UKCIP)

The UK Climate Impacts Programme (UKCIP) helps organisations to adapt to inevitable climate change. The impact of past greenhouse gas emissions will influence our climate for decades, so alongside efforts to reduce emissions, we need to prepare for the climate change that we cannot avoid.

Our resources will help you to understand what the future climate might bring, what impact it could have and provide methodologies to help you to prepare. You can also learn from the experience of others through adaptation case studies from across the UK.
