We will support communities and partners in Kincardine & Mearns to be more resilient and adaptive to the current and future effects of climate change, including severe weather. 

Action 1
A coordinated approach will be taken to support communities in K&M to develop their resilience to severe weather by developing a user-friendly template for working Community Resilience Plans.  This will be piloted by an appropriate community before being made available to other interested communities.
