This working paper and accompanying case studies
aim to support UK Higher Education Institutions
(HEIs) to develop processes to assess their current
and future climate risks, put in place plans to adapt to
these risks, and identify opportunities to strengthen
their resilience. This guidance summarises the latest
evidence in line with national climate risk assessment
and adaptation planning, and is intended to support
decision makers, senior leaders, sustainability
practitioners and risk experts within HEIs to
undertake this urgent work. Potential activities are
identified for key actors and communities including
sector bodies and government.
Although the focus is on HEIs, the recommendations
and approaches covered are applicable to Further
Education Institutions (FEIs), albeit at more local
scales and with less onus on research considerations.
