The Climate Change Bill, which it is hoped will receive Royal Assent by mid 2008, will provide a strong sustainable framework for adapting to the impacts of climate change. It will require Government to report at least every five years on current and predicted impacts of climate change, and on their proposals and policy for adapting to these.

Once the legislative framework is confirmed we will be publishing an adaptation policy framework setting out our approach across Government to taking action to adapt.
