To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord De Mauley on 18 November (HL2662), what proportion of the £1.6 million spent by the Environment Agency’s Climate Ready Programme is allocated to communicating to the wider public, as opposed to organisations, the risks, opportunities and impacts of climate change on the well-being and economy of the United Kingdom.

The Environment Agency’s Climate Ready support service focuses on the priority risks and sectors in the National Adaptation Programme report, published by the Government in July 2013 and, therefore, targets organisations rather than the general public.

The service provides advice and support to help businesses, public sector and other organisations to adapt and build resilience to climate change. Support service work is available directly to the public, including the Climate Ready bulletin that is produced on a monthly basis and sent out to anyone who has registered to receive it. These bulletins publicise the events and information that the service and its partners continue to make available.
