Adapting to Climate Change

This briefing by the British National Audit Office (NAO) is in response to a request from the Environmental Audit Committee to provide an overview of government policy on adapting to climate change, including the implications of the Climate Change Act 2008 and the cross-government Adapting to Climate Change Programme, and progress across government Departments in identifying and managing risks from future climate change impacts. It presents Departments’ self-assessments of their current capacity to assess and manage these risks, using a framework for effective climate change risk management developed by the NAO for the purposes of this briefing

Landscape revitalisation and integrated river basin management programme

The content of the programme is to create, activate and develop the long-term prerequisites necessary for the social utility and the effective macroeconomic function of a complex and integrated system of measures to assure flood prevention along with a decrease in flood risks, the risk of drought and other risks of extreme natural events. International best practices for flood prevention pursuant to European experts are based on a three-level approach with the following progression: (i) First harvesting rain water at the site or place where it falls – retaining (ii) Then retention and accumulation of the rain water in the landscape – storing (iii) Finally draining off the portion of the rain water that the river basin/area/landscape did not absorb in the previous step – draining This approach also defines the main aims and priorities of the programme: storing rain water in the landscape, slowing its drainage and allowing it to be absorbed as well as revitalisation and restoration of damaged landscapes/areas/river basins
