Climate change

HR Wallingford is at the forefront of climate change risk assessment in the UK and internationally. We specialise in translating the latest scientific research into practical policy advice, adaptation strategies and decision support tools. We work in partnership with our clients to understand their climate sensitivity and vulnerability, assess their capacity to respond and then implement practical steps to improve their resilience to climate change.

Climate change risk assessment

We assess the risks related to the current climate and projected climate change for a range of time horizons. We develop methodologies to assess risks and vulnerabilities for a whole range of sectors including water, energy, transport, health, built environment, agriculture, forestry, biodiversity and ecosystem services.

Long term flood risk management strategies

Environment Agency Water FrameworkWe assess the potential impacts of climate change on flood risk and develop long term investment strategies to thereby enhance climate resilience.

Climate change and water security

We quantify the impacts of climate change and climate variability on water supply and demand, both physically and economically, to assess the likely effects upon long term water security.

Climate change and the natural environment

We assess the vulnerability of the natural environment to changes in climate.  We develop methodologies to assess impacts for biodiversity and ecosystem services and have carried out studies for a range of marine, coastal and freshwater habitats.

Helping companies plan for climate change

We review the way companies are planning to cope with climate change and recommend approaches to help integrate climate change adaptation into company strategies.

We can help you become more resilient to potential climate change by identifying and then quantifying the impacts and recommending integrated approaches to adaptation.
