Public sector

The public sector has a crucial role to play in enabling Scotland to adapt to climate change. Taking a strong, proactive approach will ensure that vital public assets, infrastructure and services are fit for current and future generations and able to deliver positive outcomes across society.

The public sector is subject to legislative duties that require action to adapt and report progress. It also has a unique leadership role in driving action and influencing change across society.

Our tools and resources are based on a strong understanding of public sector needs. The resources below have been developed in collaboration with professionals who are leading adaptation action across Scotland’s local authorities, health boards, universities and government agencies. We have also drawn inspiration from adaptation research, tools, and resources from around the world (download our reference list here).
