We worked closely with the Adaptation Sub-Committee (ASC) on the previous two Climate Change Risk Assessment’s (CCRA) and are pleased to be working on CCRA3. Rachel Brisley, our Climate Resilience Lead, is co-authoring the People and Built Environment chapter and Rob Lamb, our Chief Scientist, is involved in supporting research on future flood projections.
The Committee on Climate Change has today launched a call for evidence to identify relevant published information about the risks and opportunities facing the UK from climate change. The evidence will help to inform the Government’s third UK Climate Change Risk Assessment, due to be published in 2022.
Every five years, the UK Government must carry out an assessment of current and future risks to the country from climate change. To inform the 2022 risk assessment, the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has asked the Committee on Climate Change to prepare an independent ‘Evidence Report’ by 2021. The Committee published a similar evidence report in 2016, which went on to inform the UK Government’s second Climate Change Risk Assessment in 2017.
You can find out more about the call for evidence here.
We look forward to working with the ASC and key stakeholders on this exciting and important project.
