The inquiry is considering options for community-led retreat – how communities could be enabled to relocate from areas at high risk from climate change. It is also looking at how the costs of adapting to climate change could be met.

In our submission, we identify that disabled people are at increased risk from climate change and because of this risk, we recommended that a disability lens be embedded within all central and local government climate change planning and funding. This planning should be led and driven by disabled people and Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) in partnership with central and local government.
