Climate consultancy

We support countries to understand the effects of climate change, manage climatic risks and develop climate adaptation strategies

Natural variations in the climate and longer-term changes due to human activities are increasingly affecting us and the environment we live in, such as the availability of fresh water, food security, our health, energy demands, and social and economic infrastructures. We turn the leading edge science of the Met Office Hadley Centre into practical advice and specialist consultancy services, tailored to local conditions. This supports societies to be more resilient, to be able to prepare for and adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Our climate consultancy services include:

  • Developing  regional climate modelling systems for studying impact, vulnerability and adaptation, and projecting climate change
  • Assessing and managing the impacts of climate change and variability on physical and human systems, including water, agriculture, ecosystems, health and energy
  • Developing tools and services for strategic decision making (e.g. for climate change adaptation)
  • Analysing and developing techniques to improve the understanding and communication of climate risks
  • Training and support
