Fifth annual progress report on the Climate Ready Scotland: Scottish climate change adaptation programme (SCCAP) 2014.

Purpose of The Report

Under Section 54 of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009, Scottish Ministers must make annual reports to the Scottish Parliament setting out their assessment of progress towards implementing the objectives, proposals and policies set out in Scotland's statutory Adaptation Programme.

This is the fifth Annual Progress Report on Climate Ready Scotland: Scottish Climate Change Adaptation Programme, our first statutory five-year Programme, published in May 2014.

This Annual Report provides an easily accessible account of progress under the 2014 Programme. The Scottish Government has also published a substantial amount of material on climate change adaptation in the past year in connection with the development of the new Programme to be launched in 2019. A second detailed Independent Assessment of the Programme by the Adaptation Committee of the Committee on Climate Change was published on 19 March 2019.
