The Climate Change Consortium of Wales (C3W) brings together researchers from four of the largest Welsh universities (Aberystwyth, Bangor, Cardiff and Swansea).

C3W seeks to improve understanding of the causes, nature, timing and consequences of climate change. Along with research into perceptions of climate change and potential adaptation and mitigation responses, C3W aims to improve understanding and inform decision-making by Government, policymakers, businesses and the education sector.

To achieve this C3W is developing the infrastructure for greater collaboration, capacity-building and coordination of the research community.

C3W also delivers a diversity of outreach activities that raise the international profile and impact of climate change research in Wales,effectively communicating the science via a variety of knowledge exchange events.

C3W is a 10-year, £4M programme that was funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, with additional support for outreach work provided by Countryside Council for Wales. The Consortium was established in November 2009.
