New Report on Scotland’s Climate Change Adaptation Progress

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) published a report on 27 September assessing Scotland’s progress in adapting to climate change. The report’s overall conclusion is that steps are being taken to prepare for climate change, but a lack of evidence is making it difficult to judge whether Scotland’s vulnerability to climate impacts is increasing, remaining constant, or decreasing. The main recommendation of the report, prepared by the CCC’s Adaptation Sub-Committee (ASC), is that Scotland should state more clearly what its policies for adapting to climate change are and monitor their implementation.
