The council met four times during the year, in July, November, February and June. As part of each meeting the council invited representatives of interest groups to discuss climate change adaptation and mitigation issues. The lists of the issues raised in these meetings are in the annual report and also in the minutes of those meetings which are on the council’s internet page.

The council hosted a public forum in April this year where interested members of the public were able to ask questions of the council and receive advice from the council, who are relevant experts in their fields. The council did not choose to make any specific recommendations in its annual report. The council has now developed a forward program of themed public fora and meetings for 2013-14, focusing on mainstreaming climate change, details of which will soon be announced by the council.

I commend the report to the Assembly.
