Social vulnerability and climate change – online resource published

Climate Just is a new online resource intended to help identify communities that are vulnerable to extreme climate change impacts such as flooding and heatwaves. Primarily intended for municipalities and community-based groups in England, Climate Just helps to identify local resources to address social vulnerability and build local adaptation capacity.

Climate change has the potential to increase inequalities and disadvantage in the UK. Local authorities and other organisations working on climate change, or working with vulnerable communities, have a key role to play in responding to this challenge. The Climate Just website has been developed to provide evidence to support local action.

  • It highlights which people and places are likely to be most vulnerable to the impacts of extreme weather, including flooding and extreme heat, and the areas which might be most affected.
  • It also examines fuel poverty and inequities in energy policy and how these can be tackled locally.
  • Take a look at our maps to identify the issues in your local area and find guidance, case studies and resources on actions you could take to help build local resilience.
