Criteria met if the council has accurately identified the environmental risks of climate change to the local area, either in a stand alone climate change or adaptation risk register, or incorporated into the council's corporate risk register.

Adaptation plans are not valid, unless there is a risk register or equivalent within the adaptation plan.


Environmental risks of climate change in the local area include flooding, extreme heat, air pollution or other extreme weather events.
