Climate change strategyLast updated: 13 August 2009 09:58 UK
As a coastal city Portsmouth is incredibly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change with sea level rises increasing the risk of flooding, and rising temperatures increasing the risk of heat related deaths for the most vulnerable of our residents.
The Portsmouth Sustainability Action Group, which is the key partnership in the city focused on tackling climate change, has produced a multi-agency climate change strategy which sets out the key priorities for the City. You can find a copy of this below.
The success of Portsmouth's climate change strategy and of making Portsmouth into a low carbon city will be reliant on us all working together. Public sector organisations, businesses and residents all need to take responsibility for the future of the City and take action to tackle climate change.
