New guidance launched for boroughs on climate adaptation

Climate adaptation and resilience is a growing priority for London boroughs as average temperatures increase and extreme weather events become more intense and more frequent.

London boroughs have a key role to play in adapting to a changing climate and strengthening resilience, to reduce the impact on infrastructure and communities while restoring nature and improving health outcomes. Climate adaptation and resilience touch on different themes and service areas – for example flooding, housing, nature, transport and health.

This new guide aims to support boroughs at the start of their adaptation journey by looking across these themes and setting out boroughs’ responsibilities and national and regional policy. It also maps London’s governance landscape and identifies opportunities for collaboration with key stakeholders and networks.

This guide has been developed collaboratively with borough officers and our key London partners as part of the Resilient and Green theme. Resilient and Green will develop a package of support to scale borough action on climate adaptation, with this guide being a first output. Further information and resources are available on the Climate Programme SharePoint.
