Natural environments and climate change

Our environment is constantly changing.  For some communities changes to climate are causing longer droughts, more severe floods and harsher environments. At Practical Action we aim to minimise the dangers faced by communities and are always working to provide simple and workable solutions to cope with future climate change.  This section provides case studies, classroom activities and other resources which will help when delivering topics on how individuals adapt to natural environments.

Suitable for  Key Stages 3-4
