The Mayor's Draft Climate Change Adaptation Strategy
The Mayor's Climate Change Adaptation Strategy public consultation ran from 9 February 2010 to 9 May 2010. Climate change means in the future London will have hotter summers and wetter winters, with the capital at increased risk of floods, droughts and heat waves.
The Mayor held a public consultation on his draft Climate Change Adaptation Strategy to get Londoners' ideas on how we can best prepare for a changing climate by adapting our homes, communities and lifestyles.
For the first time ever, the Mayor held the public consultation online with users asked to contribute ideas via the Climate Change Adaptation website.
The consultation proved a great success with more than 7,000 people visiting the website. We received hundreds of great ideas, and the best of these will be incorporated into our climate change strategies in the future.
