Why tracking adaptation actions is important

Adapting to climate change means taking action to prepare for and adjust to current and predicted effects of climate change. Adaptation plays an important role in managing past, present and future climate risk and impacts. However, there is an ‘adaptation gap’ where the distance  between existing adaptation efforts versus adaptation needs is widening. Tracking national adaptation plans is deemed critical to support future decision-making and drive future actions.

Our guest today is Katie Jenkins. Katie has created an Adaptation Inventory of adaptation actions happening based on official records of adaptation projects being implemented by both public and private sector here in the UK.
