The BUCCANEER – Birmingham Urban Climate Change Adaptation with Neighbourhood Estimates of Environmental Risk

The BUCCANEER is an interactive online tool for enhancing decision making amongst city planners, public health and developers to deliver a more sustainable future for Birmingham, created in partnership with the University of Birmingham and Birmingham City Council. For the first time, decisions can be taken with consideration of the varying heat stress across the city caused by the urban heat island and the likely impacts of climate change up to 2011. Layers of socioeconomic and environmental vulnerability highlight areas of high risk to prioritise action.

Thanks to BUCCANEER, Birmingham will become an international expert in climate modelling.
