Tim Coleridge is Programme Leader for the MSc Sustainability and Adaptation Programmes at the Centre for Alternative Technology.

Below are some links Tim has sent us on the topic of Climate Change Adaptation, in which he told us Scotland are leading the way. This sparked a lot of discussion about how we could not only work on a local Adaptation Plan for Llandrindod but also engage with the preparation of a county Adaptation Plan, through the Powys Transition & Low Carbon Communities network  and PAVO's One Powys Connecting Voices programme.

Community Mapping:

Tim mentioned a Community Mapping example in Carse of Gowrie in which the community  came together to map the climate change adaptation resources and issues in their area. This reminded us of our Llandrindod Green Map project started in 2008.  If anyone interested in taking this up again, please join our Green Map group or This email address is being protected from spambots.
