Commission to study climate adaptation

The Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution has announced it will investigate how the UK can adapt to climate change.

In particular, it will look at whether the UK has the institutional capacity and arrangements needed to adjust to changes in the natural environment.

It is inviting evidence in three areas: biodiversity, nature conservation and protected areas; sea level and coastal zones; and freshwater. It wants to identify adaptation issues, looking at the interactions between the natural environment and society.

The commission will assess current understanding of how climate change might impact on ecosystems and on what timescales, how society values the natural environment and how the environment can be managed to safeguard these values. The submission deadline is 10 October.
