Abstract

In June, the Climate Change Committee (CCC) will be publishing its Independent Assessment of Climate Risk to underpin the next UK Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA3).  The Assessment has been produced by a team of over 400 expert authors and reviewers.  The University of Exeter have led the consortium producing the Technical Report, in partnership with the Met Office, which will be published alongside the CCC’s Advice Report.  The Assessment considers the risks and opportunities from climate change to the UK up to 2100, and assesses the urgency of further action in the next five years.
