New EU Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change


The European Commission has opened a public consultation until June 30th 2020, with the aim of gathering different contributions and suggestions on the new European Union (EU) strategy for adaptation to climate change.

The current EU climate change adaptation strategy has been evaluated positively and shows that the strategy has met its objectives and progress has been made for each of its eight individual actions. However, several areas for improvement have been identified based on experience and knowledge from its implementation.

The new adaptation strategy is one of the initiatives included in the Commission's 2020 Work Programme and will be designed to support the achievement of the objectives of EU climate legislation.
