Climate Change And Small Medium Enterprises (SME)

These slide are a general introduction about the potential impacts that small-medium enterprises (SMEs) face created by the UK Climate Impacts Program (UKCIP). It is important for local governments to be aware of the SME risks as it has the capacity to support their adaptation through land use planning, design, emergency management and community engagement. Also as some Australian councils have differentiated rates systems (e.g. where commercial pay higher rates) the resilience of SMEs in those regions will have direct consequences on council income.
