The climate crisis poses a serious threat to the United States economy and human welfare, with a narrowing timeframe to invest in opportunities to avoid the most catastrophic impacts. Extreme weather events can be exacerbated by climate change, disrupting supply chains, and flooding made worse by sea level rise can destroy critical infrastructure. As a smaller subset of these impacts, climate change threatens the Nation’s fiscal health.

Open Public Services White Paper

whitePaper | July 1, 2022

We believe that more open public services can benefit everybody in the UK and that finding ways to deliver better services for less money is a challenge that is common to all four nations of the UK. The scope of this paper is UK wide, but in devolved areas of policy it is for the devolved administrations to determine their own approach to public service reform. The three devolution settlements in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are all different although, in general, services such as health, education and those provided by local government are under devolved control. If you live or work in any of the devolved territories and are in any doubt as to which of these reforms would apply there, the relevant territorial office will be able to advise you. We are committed to working in partnership with the devolved administrations to share good practice and to explore whether our approach would suit their particular circumstances and need.
