Forthcoming: Third report on UK’s preparedness for climate change

The United Kingdom’s Committee on Climate Change, an “independent body established under the Climate Change Act to advise the Government on emissions targets, and to report to Parliament on progress made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions” has announced that it will be soon be releasing its “third report on the UK’s preparedness for climate change.” According to the Committee, the report:

…uses the Adaptation Sub-Committee assessment toolkit to monitor progress in preparing for flood risk, the largest of the risks to emerge from the UK Government’s first climate change risk assessment. In the wake of the country’s worst drought for 30 years, the report also updates on progress in preparing water resources for climate change, following publication of the UK Government’s Water White Paper.

Stay tuned.
