London's Adaptation Strategy

The City of London has released its draft Climate Change Adaptation Strategy. While news reports claimed it was a "world first" product, the broad range of adaptation strategies documented here just over the past few months demonstrates that such claims are perhaps a bit of an over-statement.

Nevertheless, the report does identify and discuss a number of key risks to the city and presents a range of potential options for adaptation. However, as if often the case, little mention is made of the city's current and future capacity and resources to implement such adaptation options and the various barriers that may exist.
