The Scottish Government has made a commitment to develop a new five-year Climate Change Adaptation Programme for Scotland. The new adaptation programme will build on progress made under the 2009 Adaptation Framework, and the first statutory adaptation programme in 2014. The new programme will take into account the latest Climate Change Risk Assessment, published in 2017, and assessments of the current programme by the independent advisers, the Adaptation Sub-Committee of the Committee on Climate Change.
The Scottish Government is requesting the public submit their views on the draft programme: its vision, outcomes, sub-outcomes, and the policies in place to deliver these, as well as how progress should be monitored. The feedback will be used to develop the programme for launch in autumn 2019.
