UK Climate Resilience Programme projects
Working alongside industry experts, JBA’s leading climate resilience specialists led three key projects to support the joint Met Office and UKRI UK Climate Resilience Programme. These projects have led to new standards for climate services and informed national climate information needs.

The UK Climate Resilience Programme has enhanced the UK’s resilience to climate variability and change through frontier interdisciplinary research and innovation on climate risk, adaptation and services. The programme has worked with stakeholders and end-users to ensure the research is useful and usable. JBA was appointed to lead multi-disciplinary teams to develop climate services standards and valuation methodologies and develop guidance to inform the future need for climate information.
Our projects in the UKCR programme have brought together very wide groups of stakeholders in the UK and internationally to develop new climate services standards and guidance (led by Climate Sense and JBA); a methodology for valuing climate services (led by Paul Watkiss Associates) and assessed climate information needs for future decision-making.
These projects all engage with broad user and provider groups throughout their duration to make outputs as practical and useful as possible, while maximising cutting-edge science from the Met Office and other climate service and information providers.
The outcomes of these projects include:
- Recommendations for the future needs for climate information in the UK
- A new standard and guidance document to use when developing new services, or measuring existing services against
- Climate service users have increased confidence to make effective and informed decisions
- Climate service users and providers have important information on the value of climate services
