Practical tips for following the IMCORE approach to planning to adapt to coastal climate change 


Flooding and sea level rise are part of a number of potential threats posed by climate change which can affect Aberdeen and its economic development. The severity of the threat depends on the magnitude of the likely effects, which cannot be accurately forecast. However, in the short term this appears to be relatively small. Nevertheless, the cost of mitigating all the impacts is likely to rise steadily and will represent an increasing economic burden for the city. This will be exacerbated by a lack of knowledge, funds, experience, strong public and executive will to robustly address climate change issues. This is currently impeding significant progress but projects such as IMCORE aim to help improve the situation and have the potential to have a lasting impact on society at the local scale.

This learning portal brings together the results and lessons learned from the IMCORE project. This project was funded under the Interreg IVB programme from 2008 to 2011.
