ASC: Managing climate risks to well-being and the economy

Adaptation Sub-Committee (ASC)

We support the CCC in its analysis of adaptation to the impacts of climate change by examining infrastructure vulnerabilities.

The report investigates the threats and opportunities for the country from climate change, focusing on the risks to infrastructure, business and public health. It also provides an update on previous analysis on flooding, and considers the current capacity in the emergency response system to handle climate extremes.

This is the third in a series of annual reports from the Adaptation Sub-Committee exploring what should be done in England to prepare for climate change. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have separate adaptation programmes.
