Climate change impacts from abroad could affect the UK more than climate change at home according to a report, published by Foresight, the Government’s futures think tank.
The report ‘International Dimensions of Climate Change’ shows that the UK will be vulnerable to adverse impacts from climate change abroad. More attention needs to be given to how climate change effects in other countries may have domestic impacts here.
The report has identified a wide range of risks to the UK from climate change impacts in other parts of the world, which may have implications for:
i) Financial sector and business;
ii) Resources and infrastructure;
iii) Foreign policy and security
