Towards the end of January 2014, Climate East Midlands ran two further business resilience workshops in Corby and Derby. Blasts of severe weather have become the norm for our resilience workshops: in Corby we had heavy rain and in Derby we had snow. Both workshops received positive feedback and the participating businesses left with a better understanding of how they could act to increase their resilience to severe weather and climate change.

A set of nine case studies is published today which illustrate how local authorities across the East Midlands are adapting to the changing climate, during this year of weather extremes. Every city and county in the region is featured in the set and the geographical differences highlight the different climate risks that are faced by urban, rural, upland and coastal areas. This new resource is one of the outputs from the £950k East Midlands Climate Change Skills Programme, supported by East Midlands Improvement and Efficiency Partnership.
Free workshops in Derby, Leicester, Nottingham and Staffordshire, aimed at companies regulated by the Environment Agency.
