Preparing for a Changing Climate: Good Practice Guidance for Local Government

Category: Briefing Notes

Date: 27 June 2019

‘Preparing for a Changing Climate: Good Practice Guidance for Local Government’ is designed to assist local government with preparing for the impacts of change adaptation.

This guide is designed for a wide range of officers working to implement adaptation within local government – whether that is a combined authority, district council, county council or unitary authority. This includes those responsible for adaptation planning, managing civil contingencies, and contributing to longer term planning, as well as those who want to make their services more resilient.

It is relevant both for organisations that are just starting out on adaptation planning, as well as for those who already work in adaptation, who are looking for new ways to move the agenda forward in their own area. It is also applicable to relevant stakeholders and partners who have a role in working alongside local authorities to progress adaptation in their local areas.
