The overall objective of this report is to describe, given current knowledge, the sensitivity of National Rivers Authority (NRA) activities to climate change and to assist in the development of NRA response to climate change. Specific objectives are listed below: 1. To summarise the current state of knowledge of possible climate changes in England and Wales, and review the rate at which information on possible climate changes might be improved; 2. To estimate, given current knowledge, the sensitivity of each NRA core function to climate change, and indicate both the key impact areas and the uncertainties in current assessments; 3. To identify the parameters of climate change of greatest relevance to the NRA; 4. To assist the NRA to develop a management and related research strategy in response to climate change.
