CCRA3 Call for Evidence

CCRA3 Call for Evidence 3 September 2020

Climate Change Risk Assessment Final Call for Evidence

The Committee on Climate Change has launched the final Call for Evidence to inform the UK’s 3rd Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA3). The CCRA3 project team would like academic and non–academic evidence on risks and opportunities to the UK from changes in our own climate and from climate change elsewhere in the world, and on adaptation measures in place or planned.   

Following the first and second calls for evidence, the CCRA authors would appreciate more information in particular on:  

  1. How adaptation actions are already addressing climate risks or opportunities, especially in the Devolved Administrations of Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales  

  1. How further adaptation actions could address climate risks or opportunities, especially in the Devolved Administrations of Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales  

  1. Limits to adaptation  

  1. Implications for the UK of abrupt, non–linear, or irreversible changes in the global climate system  

  1. Implications of climate change for the UK’s transition to an economy with net zero carbon emissions, e.g.: how climate change may affect the potential for ecosystems, infrastructure, and human behaviours to contribute to ‘net zero’.  

Alongside these priority areas, we would also welcome other evidence more widely related to future trajectories of emissions and concentrations of greenhouse gases, changes in weather and climate extremes and climate change risks and opportunities for the UK for the natural environment and assets, infrastructure, health, communities and the built environment, and business and industry, along with implications for the UK of climate change elsewhere in the world. 

Evidence should be received by 18th September 2020. 

Please submit evidence by email to CCRA3evidence@exeter.ac.uk accompanied by the ?CCRA3 Third Call for Evidence proforma which is designed to help us identify the most relevant aspect of the assessment to which it relates. 

Climate NI would greatly appreciate it if you could copy us (info@climatenorthernireland.org.uk) into the email when submitting evidence to the CCRA project team or if you could let us know what you have submitted.
