Climate Change Adaptation Report

Author(s): Hannah Fluck, Ruth Knight

This report has been prepared in response to the third round Adaptation Reporting Power call from Government arising from the Climate Change Act 2008. It has been prepared by Historic England and the English Heritage Trust working in collaboration; each organisation takes responsibility for the accuracy of its own information supplied in this report. This report focuses on adaptation and not mitigation and therefore does not constitute a climate strategy for either Historic England or English Heritage Trust. This report builds on the earlier Climate Change Adaptation Report submitted by Historic England for the second round of Adaptation Reporting Power reporting in 2016, reporting on progress against the commitments made in that report. This report includes the results of hazard mapping undertaken in collaboration with other UK heritage organisations and presents initial findings of the risks to the National Heritage List for England and the National Heritage Collection. This report also includes draft actions from the emerging Historic England Climate Strategy which was draft at the time of writing. For the most up to date information on each organisation’s climate change work, including climate strategy, please visit their respective webpages.
