Applying Climate Just in Hull

Hull City Council has been using Climate Just to help engage particular groups of staff and external bodies and inform them about different climate impacts and the risks to socially vulnerable groups. Since suffering extensive flooding incidents in 2007 and again in 2013, the risks from surface water, river and coastal flooding are all too apparent and the City Council has had a strategic commitment to climate change adaptation since 2010. The Council’s Environment and Climate Change Strategy Advisor has worked with colleagues in Housing, Adult Social Care and Public Health and used Climate Just to influence strategic plans and particular projects.
