Adapting the Levels — a partnership project between Somerset Wildlife Trust, Somerset County Council, and FWAG South West* — have recently launched a brand new Climate Adaptation Toolkit to help communities prepare for our changing climate.
Climate change is already affecting everyone in Somerset, with flooding and severe heatwaves impacting communities across the county. Unfortunately, extreme weather such as this is only likely to increase as the climate crisis continues. This makes climate adaptation essential. To help, Adapting the Levels have created a guide to help communities take action into their own hands. The new toolkit includes:
Information about the need for climate adaptation.
Actions individuals and communities can take to adapt.
Advice on funding, consents, and permits.
Resources to help create a locally tailored climate adaptation plan.
You can download the toolkit for FREE from our website: www.somersetwildlife.org/news/adapting-levels-project-launches-its-free-climate-adaptation-toolkit
As always, many thanks for your support!
*The Adapting the Levels project is part of a larger climate adaptation programme called Co-Adapt, which is funded by the EU’s Interreg 2 Seas programme, with match funding from Somerset Rivers Authority. For more information about Adapting the Levels and Co-Adapt, click here.
