How well is Scotland Preparing for Climate Change?

Adaptation Sub-Committee report to Scottish Government – November 2011

This the ASC’s first report to Scotland. Following reports on how well the UK is prepared to deal with climate  change, the ASC was asked by the Scottish Government to undertake an  evaluation of how well Scotland is preparing for climate change.

This report provides an independent assessment of Scotland’s preparedness for  climate change, based on the ASC’s preparedness ladder. The aim of  the report is to help inform the development of Scotland’s first  statutory Adaptation Programme and to provide a baseline to measure future progress.
