Brief Description of Requirement
UK Shared Business Services Limited (UK SBS) on behalf of the Climate Change Committee (CCC) invite you to this Request for Proposal for Projections of Climate Risks to Health and Health Services from Extreme Heat: Their Societal Impact and Cost, And the Cost and Effectiveness of Adaptation Measures.
The UK Climate Change Act 2008 requires that every five years, the UK government must publish a Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA). The Fourth UK Climate Change Risk Assessment (CCRA4) Government Report is due to be published in January 2027.
As part of CCRA4, the CCC will be developing a new output to complement the Technical Report as produced in previous CCRAs. This output – to be known as the ‘Well-adapted UK report’ (WA report) – will focus on the potential for key aspects of the UK adaptation challenge to reduce the climate risks threatening the achievement of key UK policy and societal outcomes and hence set out a vision for aspects of a well-adapted UK.
This WA report will be informed by a set of commissioned, bespoke analysis projects, in-house CCC analysis and wider external evidence. The analysis will need to be developed collaboratively with decision makers and consider both risk and adaptation interventions as systemically as possible, while focusing on delivering social and economic analysis and evidence at appropriate spatial scales.
This project will focus on heat risks to health. Urban environments and their occupants are likely to be at particular risk of future heat impacts. Urbanisation exacerbates the risk of overheating hazards through the urban heat islands effect, and increases exposure, due to increases in population densities and numbers of built environment assets.
There is limited existing research on the cost-benefit and effectiveness of physical built environment interventions for managing urban heat risks in the UK’s urban environment and the subsequent risks to health. The analysis will answer the following questions:
• What are the scale and costs of current and future impacts of extreme weather (primarily heat) on urban areas in the UK?
• What kind of physical adaptation interventions (for new and existing developments) are the most cost-effective for reducing the impacts of extreme heat in urban areas in the UK?
• What kind of building-level adaptation interventions (for new and existing buildings) are required to reduce the impacts of extreme indoor temperatures in urban areas in the UK?
• What might heat-resilient urban landscapes look like across the different parts of the UK?
Please ensure you review all attached information to ensure a full understanding of this requirement. All attachments can be found with the Supplier Attachments tab within the Jaggaer eSourcing Portal.
This contract will be awarded based on the evaluation criteria as set out in the RFP document.
