Climate change strategic framework

Why do we need a framework?

We need a climate change framework to ensure that all our policies and programmes are aligned to our 2009 carbon reduction target of 35% carbon emissions reduction by 2024 and that our city is well adapted for our future climate.

This framework examines how climate change affects our city, outlines our current impacts on our climate and the steps we are taking to reduce this.  It also sets out what we need to do next to measure and manage our activities to ensure we meet our goals.
