Climate change: is the UK preparing for flooding and water scarcity? (2012)

Description

The latest assesment of the Adaptation Sub-Committee of the UK Committee on Climate Change aims to analyse how well the UK is preparing for climate change underlying that many properties are at risk of flooding in England without action on climate change. It uses a set of national indicators to help assess adaptation progress on two of the largest risks to the English regions: flooding and droughts. The report analyses and provides advice to the government for its upcoming adaptation programme.
