The UK Climate Resilience Programme is jointly led by UKRI and the Met Office with NERC taking UKRI lead (on behalf of AHRC, ESRC and EPSRC).

An initial workshop was held in September 2018 ahead of introducing the programme, which helped to draw the community together before a ministerial announcement of the programme was released in October 2018.

The Champions will be part of a Steering Committee that will support and provide advice to the Champions. The Steering Committee is composed of senior representatives  from policy, the academic community and business leaders, and has representation from the Department for Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) – and, indirectly, other government departments – and the Adaptation Committee of the Committee on Climate Change (the CCC). This will ensure that UKRI’s investment links up effectively with government departments’ research priorities and opportunities, and ensure that the system is able to respond to strategic priorities and opportunities.

The Champions will report to the Programme Board composed of UKRI and Met Office representatives.
