Between October 2010 and December 2011 nearly 100 reporting authorities from across 9 different
sectors reported on their climate change risks and adaptation plans during the first round of the adaptation
reporting power (Climate Change Act 2008).
Each of the adaptation report risk assessments was independently reviewed by the Centre for Environmental Risks and Futures (CERF), at Cranfield, using the evaluation framework to ensure that it met the direction to report.
This report provides a brief analysis of the adaptation reporting power from our perspective and includes some thoughts regarding possible changes that may wish to be considered should a second round of the adaptation reporting power be undertaken.
