UK Climate Projections (UKCP09)

This report provides background information on, and key findings from, the new projections of UK climate change in the 21st century, known as UKCP09. It is designed for anyone who wants to know about the projections themselves, ranging from general awareness to their application in impacts and adaptation assessments. In particular, the projections have been designed as input to the difficult choices that decision makers will need to make, in sectors such as transport, healthcare, water resources and coastal defences, to ensure the UK is adapting well to the changes in climate that have already begun and are likely to grow in future. The Projections show three different scenarios representing high, medium and low greenhouse gas scenarios – this can help to demonstrate the importance of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation).
