Climate Change Adaptation Manual (2020) - Evidence to support nature conservation in a changing climate
This Adaptation Manual is a resource to support practical and pragmatic decision-making, by bringing together recent science, experience and case studies, and is intended to be an accessible entry point to a range of available resources and tools.
The first edition of the Adaptation Manual was published in 2014 and had a focus on habitat management. This new edition updates the information contained in the first edition and has been expanded to include new sections on: Species, Green Infrastructure, Geology and Morphology, Access and Recreation.
Climate Change Parks (Greenspace Scotland & Scottish Natural Heritage)
A e-resource has been produced by Greenspace Scotland in partnership with Scottish Natural Heritage to help park and green space mamagers create 'climate change parks'. The e-resource will help managers to respond to the challenges of climate change by providing practical advice and solutions, such as adapting design and management, changing grass cutting regimes, creating wildflower meadows, and much more.
Climate Ready Places (Adaptation Scotland)
Climate Ready Places is a new web resource that takes six typical places (upland, lowlands, coastal, industrial, suburbs, city) in Scotland and looks at how each place could adapt to climate change.
Natural Flood Management Handbook (Scottish Environment Protection Agency)
Guidance for local authorities and landowners to help them carry out natural flood management measures in river catchments in Scotland.
Paths and climate change - an investigation into the potential implications of climate change on the planning, design, construction and management of paths in Scotland
This study evaluates the potential impacts of predicted climate change trends on path features. It then considers possible adaptations to minimise these effects and thus protect the significant investment made in paths and to encourage active lifestyles.
Retrofitting urban parks to deliver climate change actions
This resource has been developed with support from Scottish Natural Heritage and draws on expert contributions from a number of Scottish local authorities and agencies. It explores and illustrates the
opportunities to adjust greenspace design and management to maximise climate change benefits.
