Reviewing climate change attribution in UK natural hazards and their impacts

In early 2023, the Climate Change Committee commissioned several small research projects, all of which provide insights that help enable the delivery of the detailed analysis that will feed into both the CCRA4-IA technical report and the well-adapted UK report. These inception reports covered different aspects of analysis.

The field of Detection and Attribution is rapidly moving beyond weather and climate, towards incorporating hazards and their impacts on natural and human systems. The DARA team (Regan Mudhar and Dann Mitchell along with colleagues from the University of Exeter) reviewed the comprehensive literature base relevant for the UK ahead of the next Climate Change Risk Assessment.
