A Local Climate Impacts Profile (LCLIP) is a resource that enables organisations to understand their exposure to weather and climate. By looking at past media publications it is possible to provide evidence of severe weather events and how these affect individuals and communities. Such events also impact on a Local Authority’s capacity to deliver services. Exploring our current ability to respond to weather incidents can help to better equip service delivery in the future and build resilience to any change.
The process involved looking at past weather-related media releases from newspapers and web articles and recording the variety of weather events, together with their impact. Results can be found in the "Current Documents" section to the right of the page.
