The report suggests that we are currently relatively poorly adapted to our climate, and that we are likely to face increased risks of floods, droughts and heat waves that will endanger the prosperity of the city and quality of life for all Londoners.
Proposals made for 'greening' the city include: improving and increasing London's greenspaces to keep the city cool in the summer, managing flood risk coming from the tributaries to the Thames and surface water flooding from heavy rainfall, encouraging Londoners to use less water, and raising public awareness to flood risk.
