Article: 52/1711

A report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) is the first review of how the 33 EEA member countries (including the 28 EU member states) have assessed the risks from climate change, and how they used this information in developing adaptation policies to address these risks. The report aims to promote a better understanding among experts and policymakers involved in adaptation planning. The findings will contribute to better informed decision making and adaptation in key vulnerable sectors, such as agriculture, fisheries, biodiversity protection, spatial planning and infrastructure development. It is based on information about relevant multi-sectoral assessments reported from EEA member countries.
