‘Climate action’ funding launched for 20 Scots communities

TWENTY communities across Scotland are to share £4.3m of Scottish Government funding to develop programmes addressing the climate challenge.

The funding follows pilot projects set up 18 months ago – in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Orkney and Shetland – which are described by the government, here, as having “helped to widen participation in climate action and… supported a range of projects, including on local energy and flood mitigation”.

Says the government announcement: “The funding will be delivered in 2023/24. Application and eligibility guidance will be published later this month. Network coordinators employed by the Scottish Climate Communities Action Network will work with communities to understand the needs of their area and support them with the application process.”
