Review of UK Climate Change Indicators - GA01048

Description
The report Indicators of Climate Change in the UK summarising 34 indicators of UK climate change impacts, covering climate, socio-economic and environmental factors was published be DETR in 1999.

Since publication of the DETR climate change indicators report in 1999, a number of other sets of climate impact indicators (e.g. those commissioned by the European Environment Agency and others) have been developed. Work was needed to review whether a summary set of indicators at the UK-level was still necessary and, if so, how these indicators could best complement other initiatives.

An update of the current set of UK indicators was also necessary, along with a reappraisal to assess whether:

- the original set of indicators was still appropriate
- new indicators should be devised
- indicators should be removed from the set.
