Better climate monitoring needed at Defra

The government should establish better climate monitoring systems and encourage R&D into adaptive technologies, markets and measures if it is to meet climate change targets, says a report from the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy.

Researchers from the centre, hosted by the University of Leeds and the London School of Economics and Political Science, have published the report to inform the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ upcoming National Adaptation Programme.

In ‘An Independent National Adaptation Programme for England’ they set out 12 priorities. The report’s recommendations include refining agricultural policy frameworks to ensure that they do not hinder climate resilience and food security, and ensuring that long-term infrastructure plans are also resilient.
