The Climate Change Act 2008 is a legally binding, long-term framework for the UK to mitigate and adapt to the impact of climate change. In 2012 government published the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA) (to be updated every five years) and a National Adaptation Programme (NAP) which responds to the risks within the CCRA. Under the Act, public bodies (including the MMO) must report on the steps that they are taking to respond to climate change. The purpose of this report is to highlight the ways in which the MMO’s work is at risk of being affected by a changing climate and to set out any actions to help the organisation adapt.
