The new London Environment Strategy sets out a sector-based approach to adaptation, in which LCCP will convene sector partners and relevant experts to share knowledge, identify priorities for action, and collaborate in resilience planning.
On June 29, experts from health and related sectors joined us for an initial discussion about the climate change impacts on London, the wider policy context for adaptation, and London’s approach to working with sectors and monitoring climate resilience in the capital.
Participants were asked to contribute their views about what a well-adapting health sector in London would look like, and how this could be achieved.
