Launch of European Climate Adaptation Platform

Major new website

The European Climate Adaptation Platform (CLIMATE-ADAPT) is a publicly accessible, web-based platform designed to support policy-makers at EU, national, regional and local levels in the development of climate change adaptation measures and policies. CLIMATE-ADAPT will be hosted and managed by the European Environment Agency in Copenhagen. It will support the generation of the knowledge-base required to support the development of evidence-based adaptation policies. Its contribution will inform the development of a comprehensive EU Adaptation Strategy that the Commission plans to adopt in the beginning of 2013.

Teaser: Launch of European Climate Adaptation Platform

More than 25 countries voluntarily submitted information on their national strategies and plans, assessments, climate services, and priority actions. The site features a continuously-updated database of adaptation strategies and actions at the transnational and country level. There are also case studies on initial adaptation actions at local and sub-national level. It will help users to access, disseminate and integrate information on:

  • Expected climate change in Europe
  • The vulnerability of regions, countries and sectors now and in the future
  • Information on national, regional and transnational adaptation activities and strategies
  • Case studies of adaptation and potential future adaptation options
  • Online tools that support adaptation planning
  • Adaptation-related research projects, guideline documents, reports information sources, links, news & events.
