Climate Adaptive Neighbourhoods
The Climate Adaptive Neighbourhoods (CAN) Project was one of 50 projects funded by the Technology Strategy Board as part of the UK Government’s ‘Design for Future Climate Programme’. The aim of the Design for Future Programme is ‘to help develop innovative ideas to make buildings fit for the future’
Enabling Adaption and Extending the Life of Buildings
Completed in 2014, the CAN Project identifies measures to adapt to climate change and a timeline during which these should be carried out. This research involved working with the University of East Anglia (UEA) Tyndell Centre, to use the Weather Generator Project (as used for UKCP09) to explore climate impacts at high resolution. This cutting edge research with a focus on water stress and water hazard, which is particularly relevant to many parts of the East of England.
