The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) published its Adaptation Progress Report 2015 this week, and identified some high-level adaptation priorities for the UK, including flood risk to existing properties, heat-related health impacts, soil fertility and the ecological condition of farmed land. The full report provides a comprehensive assessment of adaptation – based on sectors such as built environment and agriculture, and also reviews the performance of the National Adaptation Programme. The CCC makes 36 recommendations for action by Government, agencies and other bodies.
