Change requires Adaptation

while protecting where we live


Your visit to IS-2050 in North Wales in June 2015 is a splendid time to appreciate some of the UK’s greatest natural environments, shared around the Irish Sea Maritime region and so relevant to our conference for all of us.

To protect our environment we need to reduce pollution and the renewable tidal energy elements in this conference target that objective.  Protecting wildlife reserves and areas of marine biodiversity are also environmental priority issues that come into play when considering flood prevention, tourist amenities and infrastructure development.

The government also enforces regulations that keep our water, land and air clean. Climate change and extreme weather are natural hazards that threaten our environment as government helps communities adapt, avoid or recover from flooding and other weather-related hazards.
