Independent Assessment of UK Climate Risk 2021
This is a report that the Government committed to a report on the UKs Climate Risk every five years. This is the third report and sets out the priority climate change risks and opportunities for the UK. Details information on this extensive work can be found here www.ukclimaterisk.org and download the report here
The report states that, "the gap between the level of risk we face and the level of adaptation underway has widened. Adaptation action has failed to keep pace with the worsening reality of climate risk.", but that, "The UK has the capacity and the resources to respond effectively to these risks, but it has not yet done so.
Acting now will be cheaper than waiting to deal with the consequences. Government must lead that action." They then identify eight risk areas that require the most urgent attention in the next two years, the 61 risks and opportunities, and recommends ten principles for good adaptation planning. These are intended to bring adaptation into mainstream consideration by Government and business.
