This report presents the results of an expert led assessment that refines our understanding of the sensitivity of habitats to climate change. Using the Delphi technique and a panel of academic and practitioner experts, an externally validated 5-point scale of sensitivity was developed for habitats in good and degraded condition. The assessment will guide the prioritisation of interventions to those habitats most sensitive to climate change and thus support efforts to reduce climate risk and support nature recovery.
