Consequences of weather and climate
Workshop 3 in the 2015 introductory ALE programme was held in Dundee on 20 October. The aim was to understand how weather impacts differ in different places, how severe weather events currently impact us in direct and indirect ways and how severe weather event impacts will be exacerbated with future climate change.
Participants discussed examples of how different organisations have gathered and acted on weather information and looked at ways to embedd adaptation in their organisations.
Ruth Monfries gave a presentation on weather impacts in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Their experience has been gathered in a case study that can be downloaded below.
