Business Resilience and Adaptation

CLASP has been working with local authorities in Greater Manchester, Liverpool City Region, Cheshire, Warrington and Cumbria to develop short guides to climate resilience for small and medium sized businesses.

Three versions are currently available:


The guides explore:

  • What changes we might see to our climate
  • What impacts these can have on businesses
  • Ways to protect businesses from these impacts
  • Opportunities to benefit from climate changes
  • Resources and tools to assess and increase business resilience
  • Case studies from affected businesses 

The guide also includes a simple 2 page checklist to assist SMEs with assessing their climate resilience and identifying actions to take.

The guide has been adapted from an original version produced by the West Midlands Climate Change Adaptation Partnership and Climate East Midlands.  It is available to be adapted to any other local area.  For more information please contact
