Government tips on climate change
THE Welsh Government has published statutory guidance for public services on Preparing for a Changing Climate.
It will assist organisations such as local authorities, health services, the fire service, Natural Resources Wales and the National Park Authorities to assess how they may be affected by climate change and produce plans to manage it.
For example, a health board will look at how extreme weather events will impact on their ability to maintain service levels and, if necessary, handle extra numbers of patients. Issues to consider in a changing climate include keeping buildings open, staffing them, providing an ambulance service and dealing with extra demands on services.
Environment Minister John Griffiths said: "It is very apt that we are launching this guidance during Climate Week. The Welsh Government is committed to taking action on things that benefit people's everyday lives.
