Details

In June 2017 the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) and the Adaptation Sub-Committee (ASC) published the ninth progress report on Government’s mitigation activity and the second statutory assessment of the National Adaptation Programme. A third document provided a summary of the issues for both adaptation and mitigation and presented the CCC’s main recommendations for Government on climate change. The Government has responded separately on mitigation and adaptation.

The mitigation response addresses the CCC’s recommendations on progress towards meeting carbon budgets. It covers the following sectors: power, buildings, industry, transport, agriculture and land use, land-use change and forestry, waste and f-gases. This document should be read alongside the government’s Clean Growth Strategy.

The adaptation response addresses the ASC’s 28 detailed recommendations on preparing for the impacts of climate change. It covers activity relating to the natural environment, people and the built environment, infrastructure, business and local government.
