The Who Cares about the Environment? research has been conducted every three years since 1994. During the year following the 2006 survey, there was substantial public and media attention on water resources and climate change.

In order to assess whether public attitudes and priorities had shifted in the 12 months since the 2006 survey, the Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC) commissioned a supplementary study in 2007. 

The Who Cares About Water and Climate Change in 2007? survey was conducted in JuneJuly 2007, with 825 respondents from the main survey in 2006. Several core questions from the Who Cares? series were repeated and new questions relating to global warming and climate change were added in this survey.
