About Climate Change Adaptation
Climate change affects different people, from all walks of life, in different ways. We are working with communities around Bridport and Dorchester to explore how extreme weather and climate change affects them already, how this will change in future and what we can do to tackle it.
We are working with communities to explore how climate change will affect them locally (e.g. more intense rainfall, heatwaves, milder winters etc) and how they can adapt to it.
On 30th July 2014 we organised a workshop for people in Bridport to give their views on how their community is affected by severe weather and how the town can adapt to be more resilient to both today’s weather and the future’s. To see their ideas read the workshop report.
Agriculture and the commercial fishing industry
We are working with the local farming and fishing communities to explore how climate change will affect their businesses and how they can prepare to deal with those impacts.
