The impacts of climate change will not be equal or fair and, without action, could increase existing disadvantage – this was reinforced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s latest Assessment report.
Thanks to Climate Just, you can look at climate change impacts across England at a neighborhood level, on a publicly available website: this powerful new website with mapping tool was launched by Climate UK and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, in partnership with the Environment Agency and the University of Manchester.
This London training event included:
– An introductory training workshop from 9:30 to 12:30, for those interested in learning how to use the Climate Just tool in practice – find out more and register here
– An intermediate training workshop from 13:30 to 16:30, for those who are looking to extend their knowledge about Climate Just or try a new application – find out more and register here
How can Climate Just assist you?
Climate Just aims to help practitioners in England to address issues of social disadvantage and climate change. It provides detailed mapping of ‘hot spots’ across the country, and a huge amount of supporting information, tools and resources to support fairer decision-making and policy creation.
The tool can be of great assistance to professionals working in:
– spatial planning – to map out areas of greater need for action
– housing – to understand your local needs in the light of climate change impacts
– public health – to develop local health & care plans for resilience to climate change
– social care – to find out about climate change’s social impacts in your area
– environment roles – to develop locally relevant policy
– local resilience forums – to inform your environmental resilience plans
