The Transboundary Adaptation Learning Exchange (TalX) project is an Irish Environmental Protection Agency funded research project led by University College Cork and delivered in partnership with Sniffer and Northern Ireland Environment Link.

The TalX project aimed to support and progress adaptation action in Britain and Ireland. To do this we:

  • Developed a Climate Adaptation Partnership Framework which supports partnerships to progress adaptation by defining a process of change and providing practical actions to enhance adaptive capacity and deliver ‘on the ground’ activity
  • Established communities of practise for adaptation practitioners who helped to develop the Climate Adaptation Partnership Framework and created inspiring case studies.
  • Provided an assessment of national adaptation policy across the five jurisdictions areas (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Ireland)

We had the privilege of working with climate adaptation practitioners and researchers from across Ireland and Britain on the TalX project. We heard amazing stories of progress and participants bravely shared their challenges and learning too. You can find out more from the project resources on the TalX website.

We were able to work in depth with stakeholders in Derry and County Mayo to scope out emerging partnership work on climate adaptation and we are excited to see how this work develops in the years ahead.

This phase of the TalX project is now complete but the learning lives on!
