The European Commission has adopted a new EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change, setting out the pathway to prepare for the unavoidable impacts of climate change.
While the EU is putting plans in place to mitigate climate change, domestically and internationally, it also recognises the need to prepare to face climate impacts.
From deadly heatwaves and devastating droughts, to decimated forests and coastlines eroded by rising sea levels, climate change is already taking its toll in Europe and worldwide.
Building on the 2013 Climate Change Adaptation Strategy, the aim of the new strategy is to shift the focus from understanding the problem to developing solutions, and to move from planning to implementation.
The strategy was launched at a two-day online event in February, during which Paul Watkiss from the UK Climate Resilience Programme helped moderate some of the sessions.
