Climate change is having, and will continue to have, major impacts on life in Scotland, the UK and the rest of the world. Some of the effects already being seen in changing weather patterns, increased frequency of wildfires and human migration driven by climate change-induced droughts and crop failures. At the James Hutton Institute, we are carrying our research across a wide range of subjects related to climate change. We are looking for ways to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation), deal with the changes that are already taking place and that will happen in the future (adaptation) and make communities and society more resilient to these changes.

ClimateChange@Hutton was formed for several reasons. We need to improve our communication on the diverse range of climate change work that we carry out. We also need to provide researchers at the James Hutton Institute a way of bringing their relevant work together, sharing ideas and developing new research both internally and externally. Our goal is to improve the impact and visibility of our research and to increase awareness of the ways in which this research is interlinked.
