Updating the UK Water Industry Climate Change Adaptation Framework - UKWIR Climate Change Adaptation Framework Handbook

 
Price: £28  

This project was commissioned to update the previous Water UK framework in order to take account of recent developments in UKWIR projects and other research. The main changes in this updated framework are the greater consideration of the interdependencies, understanding barriers and consideration of climate sensitivities, thresholds and risks and how these may affect levels of service. It aims to provide an over-arching approach to adaptation that is incorporated into more detailed planning and business processes. The framework supports the improvement of resilience and adaptive capacity within water companies.
The main themes of the framework are 'understanding', 'planning' and 'managing'. The activities within these themes take place within an iterative cycle. There are four elements that are relevant across all activities; risks and adaptation actions, adaptive capacity, interdependencies and enablers and barriers.
