The extremes of weather that we saw last year highlight the urgent need to plan for a changing climate.
More of this extreme weather will exacerbate many of problems that we already deal with including flooding and water scarcity, so taking action today to prepare and adapt homes, businesses, agricultural practices and infrastructure is vital.
