Scotland’s climate is changing but action to adapt to critical impacts has stalled, posing risks to people, infrastructure, and business, finds a new assessment from the Climate Change Committee (CCC).

Over the last 30 years, average temperature in Scotland has risen by 0.5?C, Scottish winters have become 5% wetter and sea level around the Scottish coast has increased by up to 3cm each decade.

Further climate change in Scotland is now inevitable, no matter how rapidly global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, according to the CCC.

The CCC’s assessment highlights five areas where action to adapt and build resilience to climate change in Scotland is stalling, including natural environment, infrastructure, built environment, health and business.
