Part 2 involves refining your climate change impacts identified in Part 1, and identifying levels of sensitivity and adaptive capacity.

Preparing for a changing climate is a relatively new and fast-moving area of work. The Guidance reflects this and recognises that there is no single, uniformly-applicable process for adapting to climate change.

Part 2 also includes a climate change risk assessment that explores the likelihood and consequence of each impact, and provides your organisation with a list of prioritised impacts to develop actions for in Part 3.
