Eastern and Midland Climate Action Regional Office (CARO) – Local Authority Climate Change Adaptation Strategies

 

The Eastern and Midland Climate Action Regional Office (CARO) is working closely with the 17 local authorities in its region on the preparation of Local Authority Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in line with the provisions of the Climate Act 2015 and the National Adaptation Framework (2018). The anticipated completion date of the strategies for formal adoption by elected members is on or before 30th September 2019.

Public consultation (c.4 weeks) is provided for within the process where key stakeholders are invited to view and make submissions or observations on the provisions of the strategies.

The local authority adaptation strategy takes on the role as the primary instrument at local level to:

  •  Ensure a proper comprehension of the key risks and vulnerabilities of climate change
  • Bring forward the implementation of climate resilient actions in a planned and proactive manner
  • Ensure that climate adaptation considerations are mainstreamed into all plans and policies and integrated into all operations and functions of the local authority

Local Authorities within the region can upload details of their consultation on the Government Consultations Portal, which can be accessed by clicking here.
