Climate Change Risk Assessment

7th June 2015

The UK Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA) is a five yearly assessment of the current and future risks and opportunities to the UK from climate change. The assessment is a legal requirement under the Climate Change Act (2008). The first assessment was published in January 2012 and the second is due in January 2017. For this cycle of the assessment, an independent Evidence Report will be published by the Adaptation Sub-Committee of the Committee on Climate Change in summer 2016, and a Government Report published in January 2017 by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs that will respond to the ASC's advice. This webinar is to explain the process and approach to the ASC's evidence report, what it will cover, and how interested IEMA members can input to the process.

This webinar will be of general interest to all IEMA members and of specific interest to members whose work includes considerations of Climate Change impacts, Resilience or Adaptation. Following presentations and case studies the session will include a short Q+A
