UK Climate Change Risk Assessment
The UK Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA), published on 25 January 2012, builds on the 2009 UK Climate Projections to develop our understanding of climate risk and provide detailed analysis of the practical implications of climate change across all sectors of the economy and society.
This independent analysis was funded by the UK and devolved governments and has been delivered through a consortium of UK research organisations and consultants led by HR Wallingford.
As well as the full report and summary, individual reports and summaries have been published for each of 11 key sectors and for the devolved governments. In addition, the nine Climate Change Partnerships across England have produced information packs to highlight key risks and opportunities from climate change and what they mean across a range of sectors within each area.
The CCRA Government Report sets out the main priorities for adaptation in the UK, and describes the policy context and action already in place to tackle some of the risks. The Government Report also highlights the constraints of the CCRA analysis and provides advice on how to take account of the uncertainty within the analysis.
