The East of England Climate Change Adaptation Network aims to support stakeholders to enable them to develop effective climate change adaptation strategies, making their organisations, and ultimately the East of England as a whole, resilient to changes in climate and extreme weather events.
Sustainability East established the the East of England Climate Change Adaptation Network in 2011 in response to research suggesting a gap in the capacity of cross sector organisations in relation to climate change adaptation. The network strategically links to the National Adaptation Programme (NAP) work of Defra and the Environment Agency and is structured under the following themes: Agriculture & Forestry, Buildings & Infrastructure, Health & Wellbeing, Natural Environment, Business & Economy and Local Government and Contingency Planning. The network provides a collaborative process which supports stakeholders through the sharing of knowledge and ideas, highlighting of good practice and increases learning and networking opportunities to develop capacity and to promote further work on adaptation to climate change within the East of England.
Climate change adaptation can be a complex policy area to implement, collaboration can ease this process and effective solutions can be found by sharing good practice and working with other stakeholders. The network includes over 150 members from the private, public and third sectors. Sustainability East run and chair the regular events and bring experts and pertinent issues to the group for discussion and debate.
