Climate Change: Adaptation

Volume 691: debated on Tuesday 24 April 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will take steps to accelerate the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs adaptation policy framework programme. [HL3293]

Adaptation is a vital part of our efforts to tackle climate change and a high priority for this Government. We will publish a cross-government framework on adaptation by the end of 2007. This will bring together the range of work already being taken forward and ensure a co-ordinated approach to adaptation across the UK. Adaptation is also addressed in the Climate Change Bill.
