Climate Connections: Climate Change Research in Scotland

ECRR Forum

Friday May 13, 2011

SNH Conference Centre, Battleby, Perth

UPDATE: please see below for event report.

Exploring the role that climate-related knowledge networks can play in shaping understanding of and responses to climate change within a rural context, this one-day forum aimed to facilitate conversations between scientists and interest groups.

Output from the forum will be a report that summarises, for Scottish Government and others, activity across research networks. The report will be posted here as soon as it becomes available.
