The UK Climate Resilience Programme ran from 2019 to 2023

UK Climate Resilience town hall meeting: Supporting the AHRC-led call on Living with Uncertainty


The UK Climate Resilience programme is a £18.6 million collaboration between UKRI and the Met Office which aims to draw together fragmented climate research and expertise and deliver robust, multi- and inter-disciplinary climate risk and adaptation research to ensuring the UK is resilient to climate variability and change and powerfully positioned to exploit the opportunities of adaptation and green growth.

Upcoming call

As part of the programme of activity there will be call for research proposals launching in early December 2019 which seeks to explore and test our understanding of what it means to live with uncertainty and ‘learn into an unknown future’ (Flood, 1999) within the framing of climate resilience and our changing environment due to climate change.

We anticipate the funded projects will raise awareness of what it means to work with uncertainty to build climate resilience in the real world and deliver useful knowledge (narratives, learning histories, case studies, film and other material) to further inform practices and behaviours that build confidence in practical approaches to living with uncertainty and community and environmental resilience building.

Applications are anticipated to be led by arts and humanities colleagues but to include researchers from the natural, physical, engineering, health, and social sciences where appropriate.

Town Hall Meeting

A town hall meeting will be held on Monday 16 December, 10.00-16.00 in central London (venue tbc). The aim of the event is to engage the arts and humanities and wider interdisciplinary community ahead of the launch in early December 2019 of the Living with Uncertainty call which will be led by AHRC on behalf of UKRI.

The town hall meeting aims to further communicate the remit and objectives of the programme, the specific requirements of the Living with Uncertainty call and bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines with interests in climate impacts and resilience in the UK. Attendance to the meeting is not mandatory for applicants of the call.

If you wish to attend, please complete the online Smart Survey at The closing date for applications is 17:00 on Wednesday 11 December 2019.
