ACC Strategic Evidence Fund (ACC-SEF) Improving engagement in UKCP09 - CA0106

This project will aim to use the UKCP09 scenarios to look at Key elements of DWPs business which may be impacted by future Climate Change effects.
DWP will work with the Met Office to establish the scale of those business areas at highest risk of critical impacts to feed into ongoing adaptation planning.
Findings from this project will be used to future proof the DWP Estate from Climate Change impacts in addition to highlighting the need for adaptation to decision makers and staff.
