UKCP18

Project Summary: This iCASP project was selected as a demonstrator project by the Met Office in preparation for the release of new UK Climate Projections in 2018. It used capacity building workshops to prepare 6 iCASP Springboard Partners to use the new information in the context of their day to day responsibilities. Learning was fed back to the Met Office to inform how they formulate and present the new information.
