The consultation seeks public views on a Framework through which the Scottish Government will seek to build resilience to the unavoidable consequences of a changing climate.
The Framework sets the strategic direction for Scottish Government actions but, because many adaptation decisions are taken at a local level by individual organisations, action from across all sectors will be required to achieve its objectives.
The Framework aims to help decision takers by focusing ongoing action on three areas: exposure - the degree to which Scotland is exposed to change such as increases in annual temperature; Adaptive Capacity - the ability of organisations and stakeholders to identify risks and take appropriate action; and, competing pressures - the degree to which organisations are restricted in how much they can do to adapt to a changing climate by other, competing pressures and constraints.
