Key action 2
Case study in the UK to explore the issues surrounding the local implementation of climate change adaptation options
Timescale: September 2007 - May 2008
This real-life case study will explore the issues surrounding the local implementation and delivery of the climate change policies laid out in the South East of England Regional Spatial Strategy (SE Plan) and the South East Climate Change Implementation Plan.
It will look at the barriers to implementing adaptation contained within current policies, processes and management mechanisms. The case study will also identify the key players and will explore their needs for delivering adaptation at the local level. It will also investigate how these needs can then be addressed and supported by the regional and national levels, including sectoral and individual behaviour change strategies.
