This report outlines the UK Government's views on the main issues raised in the Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA) Evidence Report (an independent analysis funded by UK Government and Devolved Governments), to highlight actions already in place to manage the risks identified in the CCRA, and to outline UK Government plans for the future. This report and the CCRA Evidence Report have been laid before Parliament in line with the requirements of the Climate Change Act 2008 (ISBN 9780105427087). This Government report sets out the main priorities for adaptation in the UK under five key themes, as identified in the CCRA Evidence Report: (i) Natural environment; (ii) Buildings and infrastructure; (iii) Health and wellbeing; (iv) Business and services; (v) Agriculture and forestry. It also describes the policy context in each area. This Report also takes account of the various initiatives and policies on adaptation in place and looks forward to Government plans to develop a National Adaptation Programme to manage major risks, and take advantage of the opportunities, as set out in the CRRA.
