The objective of this deal is to build on this progress and improve further the management of waste as a resource in the economy through an agreed set of commitments
A year on from the Government's response to Sir Michael Pitt's review into the 2007 summer floods, this is the second Government progress report showing what action has been taken to ensure we are better placed to predict, prepare for, deal with and recover from the unique challenges posed by flooding events.
This paper sets out how a number of barriers to adaptation (market failures, behavioural barriers, adaptive capacity, natural capacity) may affect adaptation decisions, and provides a framework for considering the Government’s role and identifies implications for policy design.
An independent review of the 2007 flooding, led by Sir Michael Pitt, looked at its causes and subsequent management to see what lessons needed to be learned about how to manage and respond to this type of event in the future.
This report builds on the 2005 report and 2006 progress report, providing an update on the Defra's Nanotechnology Research Co-ordination Group’s objectives and associated programme of work.
