  back to resources page

The purpose of the first Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA) was to assess the key risks and opportunities facing the UK from climate change to the year 2100. The CCRA is required by the Climate Change Act 2008 and will be completed every five years. This Water Sector Report is one of 11 Sector Reports and is a key step in the process of developing the evidence base for the CCRA. The analysis described in this report covers three themes: pressures on water availability, water quality, and the deterioration of water company assets.
