Five steps to managing your climate risks

Supporting compliance with the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 Public Bodies Climate Change Duties

“Five steps to managing your climate risks” is based on the first edition of Adaptation Scotland’s Workbook for public sector organisations (2011). The “Five steps” provides operational guidance to managing climate risks and has been developed by Adaptation Scotland in collaboration with public bodies from across Scotland. The guidance takes into account legislative changes and builds on recent adaptation planning successes in Scotland.

“Five steps to managing your climate risks” will help you to develop arrangements to manage your climate risks as required by the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009. These arrangements will recognise the work already happening in your organisation to manage climate risks, and will be used as a basis to identify further cost-saving actions, for example, by working with communities and community planning partners.
