Climate Adaptation Action Plan
Workshop Outputs
• Workshop Summary
– 2pg summary document
• Detailed Adaptation Action Plan
– Covers all identified impacts of climate change
– Including indirect impacts (although there are areas where we need
wider consultation with external organisations)
– Identifies gaps in our knowledge
– Informs future projects
• What else?
– At workshop there was a call for a single message on climate change
which we can all take away with us to help communicate issues
A word on climate change
“Warming of the global climate is now unequivocal”
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
AR5 Working Group I – September 2013

Working with others
Key Findings: Current Delivery
• Current Delivery
– Landscape-scale conservation principles have adaptation at core
– Targeted management at core sites
– Flood and coastal erosion risk management
programmes (e.g. TE2100)
– Maintenance and management of
designated sites (SPAs, SSSIs, etc)
Key Findings: Resource
Management
• Resource Management – Water
– Changing rainfall patterns will have serious implications on conservation
(wetlands) in medium to long term
Key Findings: Dynamic Species
• Dynamic Species Interactions
– Shifting species envelopes
– Changing seasonality and species interaction
– Ecosystem impacts
Key Findings: Sea Level Rise
• Rising Sea Levels
– Transforming the shape of the Estuary – need to maintain balance
between saline and freshwater ecosystems
– Impact on recreational access and enjoyment of the coast
Key Findings: Indirect Impacts
• Indirect Impacts
– Early planning increases opportunities to deliver multiple objectives,
including for biodiversity, into adaptation measures
