Climate resilience

JBA Climate Change

Climate change is affecting us now and will have a huge impact in the future, both in the UK and across the world.

Our climate resilience team is expert in translating climate information and projections to assess their impacts for the economy, society and the environment. We specialise in research, capacity building, policy development and climate risk assessment and adaptation planning.

Previous and current clients include international financial institutions such as the World Bank and European Investment Bank; national government departments such as Defra and the Welsh Government; national agencies including the Climate Change Committee, Environment Agency, UKWIR and the National Infrastructure Commission; and local authorities.

Awareness raising and
capacity building

We work with you to interpret and communicate climate change science. We help develop business cases for risk assessment and adaptation, visualise climate change and provide training and stakeholder engagement.


Using straightforward tools and approaches to identify and prioritise risks, we assess climate change impacts for vulnerable communities. We incorporate climate change projections into flood risk and coastal erosion modelling.

Adaption planning

Working at national, programme and project scale we develop strategies to build climate resilience. Identifying and appraising adaptation options allows you to take account of economic, environmental and social impacts.

Adaptation actions

We use Natural Flood Management (NFM) and engineering solutions to adapt to climate change, including designing and building flood risk management schemes and promoting community level resilience.

Resource efficiency

We promote renewable energy through planning policy advice, conducting feasibility studies and undertaking impact assessments. Our Energy and Water Technology Optimisation Services (EWTOPS) helps clients improve their carbon footprints and save money.
