The TALX project is an Irish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funded research project that aims to establish an innovative learning network to enable a cohesive approach for measuring and acting on climate change adaptation across boundaries. It seeks to develop best practice for processes which empower national, sectoral and local decision makers on a transboundary scale.
The TALX research aims to support and progress adaptation action in Britain and Ireland. To do this we are: 1- Developing an Adaptation Capability and Maturity Model (CMM) through a co-creation process with adaptation practitioners and policy-makers 2- Establishing communities of practise for adaptation practitioners 3- Providing an assessment of national adaptation policy across the five jurisdictions areas (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Ireland)
TalX builds on existing capacity for adaptation planning across the UK and Ireland and activities of Climate Ireland (MaREI, UCC), Adaptation Scotland (SNIFFER) and ClimateNI (NIEL).
