What SWM likes
Climate Just is an incredibly powerful tool that can help decision makers, practitioners and communities prepare for, respond to and recover from extreme weather events. The tool includes maps showing how vulnerable any area in England is to flooding and heatwaves, and it also provides a huge library of resources and case studies on how to make a community more resilient to the impacts of extreme weather. The above report shows how one of our members, Staffordshire County Council, has used this tool in practice and how it has benefited them in developing a more targeted a strategic approach to supporting communities within their geography. We hugely endorse using Climate Just in practice and commend other organisations who have any sort of role in community protection to do the same.
