The UK Climate Resilience Programme ran from 2019 to 2023


Welcome and Introduction

The OpenCLIM project is designed to support UK assessment of climate risks and adaptation, including future Climate Change Risk Assessments and National Adaptation Programmes, by developing and applying an integrated assessment model.

Watch this video to give you an introduction to the project.




Adaptation Inventory

As seen in the module on ‘What is adaptation’, OpenCLIM spentĀ  considerable time reviewing and cataloguingĀ  ‘on the ground’ sectoral approaches across the UK. These have been collated into a searchable database that you can explore according to sector, hazard and risk.




If you would like to read more about how the inventory was developed, you can read the academic paper that the OpenCLIM team wrote. Click on the image below to access it.
