ICAD Survey Launch


Adapting to a changing climate is a major challenge for society and organisations are a crucial part of ensuring that we meet this challenge.  However, there remains a lack of understanding about what information organisations need to make effective climate change adaptation decisions. This 'information gap' undermines organisations' ability to effectively adapt to climate change in ways that are beneficial to them and to wider society.

We want your help to find out from you, what climate information you use, and why, and what needs, if any, are not being catered for.

We would be grateful if you can spare around 20 minutes to share your thoughts and experiences by filling in our survey "Climate adaptation, information and organisations" by the 21st November 2012 (see link below)

By answering the following questions you will be actively helping us to better understand what the information needs of organisations in the UK are with regard to climate change impacts. As part of a wider research project, this survey aims to address this lack of understanding through direct engagement with UK organisations.

Based at the University of Leeds this research, funded by the European Research Council, will form the basis of academic papers, policy briefs, and practice guides to inform Government and Research Councils how climate change adaptation information is designed and used in future. 

Thanking you in advance!
