National Adaptation Programme Launched

The government has published the National Adaptation Programme report and the Strategy for the second round of the Adaptation Reporting Power.

The National Adaptation Programme (NAP) sets out what government, businesses and society are doing to become more climate ready.

The National Adaptation Programme report was published on 1 July 2013 and will be reviewed every 5 years.

The NAP report is supported by an economic annex. The ‘Economics of theNAP’ outlines the role of society in adaptation efforts, the challenges of uncertainty, the costs and benefits of climate change and the impacts of climate change on economic activity.

A summary for local government has been produced by members of the Local Adaptation Advisory Panel and is available here:

A written Ministerial Statement is also available.
