NESCCP development

The NESCCP is went through a period of review and development in 2015, as part of this process a facilitated workshop was held on 26 January 2015 the aim is to establish an effective partnership approach to addressing climate change in the north east of Scotland. The workshop followed on from climate change surveys that took place in 2014 to gather the views of partners and key stakeholders in the area.

Climate change mapping project

In 2015, a 8 week project took place to documented and identified synergies with climate change mitigation and adaptation projects among partners of the North East Scotland Climate Change Partnership. This work was carried out by a team of 5 students from the Robert Gordon University MSc Project management course using a mixture of desk based research and face to face interviews.

This document collates information on current and planned climate change work in the region documented throughout the project. The aim is that the NESCCP will add to this document as new initiatives develop.


The group meets quarterly and listed below are links to the minutes of previous meetings.
