The Scottish Climate Change Adaptation Programme 2014
Climate Ready Scotland, Scotland's first statutory five-year Climate Change Adaptation Programme, was published in May 2014. The Programme aimed "to increase the resilience of Scotland's people, environment and economy to the impacts of a changing climate".
The Programme sets out Scottish Ministers' objectives in addressing over 130 climate risks identified for Scotland in the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment 2012.
The Programme contains a broad package of measures that:
- help Scotland adapt to the effects of climate change;
- create a more resilient country for us to live and work in; and
- help to protect Scotland's much loved natural environment.
The Programme included more than 150 policies and proposals under three themes: (i) natural environment (ii) buildings and infrastructure (iii) society.
Key policy areas covered include: flood protection and flood warning, resilience, water supply, energy supply, transport, the National Coastal Change Assessment, planning, historic environment, natural environment and biodiversity.
