Adapting to climate change — Summary of 'Coastal Hazards and Climate Change' change guidance for local government. I compiled this summary to help council staff to quickly get to grips with the advice and consider how they can apply it to their area of responsibility.
Implementing the new climate change guidance — The MfE guidance on adapting to climate change is very relevant to regional councils, but can also be used by unitary and district council staff to make plans related to stormwater, flood risk, land drainage and other issues.
Natural hazards are on the national radar — The Government will soon provide more national direction on managing risks associated with natural hazards through a National Disaster Resilience Strategy. One of the outcomes of this strategy is likely to be a National Policy Statement on resilience.
