Adapting Scotland’s historic places to the impacts of climate change
Historic Environment Scotland have worked with partners from across the historic environment sector and beyond to publish a new guide on adapting Scotland’s historic places to the impacts of climate change. This guide aims to open up conversations about climate change adaptation solutions, demonstrating the resilience and adaptability of our historic environment
The guide identifies many of the risks and hazards of climate change that are facing Scotland’s historic environment and offers owners, local communities and carers of historic sites routes to take action, to implement adaptation measures and enhance resilience to climate change.
Divided into seven distinct elements, the guide provides a tool for assessing the different hazards and levels of risk that threaten different types of sites in Scotland’s historic environment.
This is an Our Place in Time publication, developed by a number of partners from across the historic environment sector and beyond to develop the guide.
