Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution Seeks Written Evidence

Following an initial scoping study earlier this year, the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution (RCEP) has now launched a formal call for evidence to its inquiry into ‘Adapting the UK to Climate Change’.

The focus of the study is on whether the UK has the institutional capacity and arrangements necessary to adapt to changes in the natural environment brought about by climate change. The Commission is inviting evidence in response to a number of questions, accessible on the Commission’s website, focused around:

  • Biodiversity, nature conservation and protected area
  • Sea-level and coastal zones
  • Freshwater

Responses are required by 10 October 2008 at the latest.

For further information about the inquiry, contact Dr Jon Freeman at the RCEP.

To contribute to the BES’s response to the inquiry, please contact the BES Science Policy Team as soon as possible.
