What research has been conducted into this subject and how can the findings help in preparing for the effects of climatic change? This report considers the potential impacts of climate change in the UK in a wide variety of environmental and socio-economic areas: the landscape, energy, tourism and the financial sector will all feel the shock waves. The coastal zone is seen as an area potentially at risk and the possible effects of climate change on the water supply are considered critical. Recommendations for policy development to abate greenhouse gas emissions and formulate adaptive strategies are made and appropriate approaches to research are suggested.
