Mapping of UK Adaptation

  • Mapping of UK Adaptation

This part of the project is headed up by Geoff Whitman.

The first objective will be achieved through a targeted comprehensive survey of user needs across UK society. After mapping a selection of diverse adapting organisations, in-depth interviews will be conducted with 70 organisations. The interview protocol will:
1. explore the adaptation context;
2. assess the credibility, legitimacy and saliency of climatic and non-climatic knowledge systems;
3. assess the impact of uncertainty on decision-making; and
4. assess users expectations of what science can deliver.
