Event - Next steps for climate Change Policy: Delivering the National Adaptation Programme

This CDP certified event will take place Thursday July 9th, 2015, at the Congress Centre, 28, Great Russell Street, London, UK. With the new Conservative government committed to tackling climate change, this seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss practical steps for the future of policy in this area - including sector-specific adaptation plans.

Delegates will assess implementation and next steps for the National Adaptation Programme (NAP), the government strategy for dealing with the most urgent climate change risks. Discussion will be informed by a keynote presentation from Daniel Johns, Head of Adaptation at the Committee on Climate Change following the delivery to government of its latest assessment of progress at the end of June. The agenda will also bring out latest thinking on the key areas of focus of the NAP, including community level flood defence, water scarcity and heat stress, and adaptation in the built and business environments.
