Climate change adaptation in Greater Manchester - the opportunities, the threats

If our city region fails to adapt, unavoidable climate change could lead to a potential loss of £20 billion to the economy. That said, early action could open up significant opportunities. Building on the blueprint of the EcoCities Project, this report seeks to provide an overview of potential climate change impact on GM Priority sectors, summarising potential climate change impact, identify the size and scope of GM's climate change adaptation sector. Produced by New Economy, Envirolink and AGMA, the report then presents an understanding of the potential opportunities relating to job creation.
