Example plans and policies

Identify spatial planning policies and measures to manage the risks identified in the vulnerability analyses.

When appraising a plan, ensure that appropriate weight is given to climate adaptation policies and measures compared to other issues of importance to the spatial plan's objectives. Manage the inherent uncertainties in climate change by including a mix of policies and measures that do one or more of the following:

  • pay off immediately under current climate conditions,

  • have multiple benefits that contribute to climate adaptation,

  • are low-cost but have potentially large benefits under climate change,
  • are flexible and resilient.
