    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    This event is your opportunity to have your say on the Scottish Government’s proposed “Climate change – national adaptation plan 2024 to 2029”.

    Through facilitated discussion attendees will have a chance to share their feedback and ideas on the plan. Feedback gathered at the event will be used to write a response to the consultation on behalf of Fife Communities Climate Action Network.

    Responding to consultations helps the government to understand the level of support they have from the public and allows feedback on points of detail. It is your chance to influence policy and guide how Scotland works towards our climate goals.

    The consultation

    The draft Adaptation Plan is structured around five outcomes, setting out the case for adaptation action for:

    1. Nature connects
    2. Communities
    3. Public services and infrastructure
    4. Economy, business and industry
    5. International action

    Each outcome is grounded in a ‘big idea’ for how the Government wants to deliver adaptation action differently in Scotland, and each outcome has its own set of objectives. These objectives define how they will deliver adaptation action. To achieve each objective, we are presented with a series of proposed policies. The thinking is that, when taken as a whole, this structure will allow clear, transparent and accountable reporting on adaptation action.

    Alongside shaping the Adaptation Plan around those five big outcomes, the Scottish government also aims to take a place-based approach to designing and delivering adaptation action.

    This is because the Scottish Government recognises climate change impacts vary massively depending on where you live. Therefore the Government is also seeking the public’s views and input on lived experiences of climate impacts, to help shape an effective and inclusive national response.

    Take Part

    The event will take place online via Zoom. Zoom details will be shared in the event registration confirmation.

    To get the most from this event and to be able to effectively provide feedback, participants should read the Public Consultation Summary  as well as the introduction to the five outcomes. These will also be shared prior to the event with those who sign up.

    During the online consultation event, FCCAN will collectively aim to answer some of the questions posed in the consultation documentation. Input gathered will be used to collate a response to the consultation on behalf of Fife Communities Climate Action Network.

    Should you prefer more detail, you can also review the full Draft Scottish National Adaptation Plan (2024-2029).
