How Europe is adapting to climate change: 10 case studies
This booklet brings together a unique collection of 10 Climate-ADAPT case studies showcasing measures that are already in place in Europe to increase resilience to extreme weather and slow-onset events, as well as to improve adaptation to climate change.
This collection of 10 European case studies showcases measures that are already being carried out in Europe to increase resilience to extreme weather and slow-onset events, as well as improve adaptation to climate change. Sharing these ideas will raise awareness of what is possible and inspire the creation of new activities to deal with observed and expected climate change impacts. The brochure also aims to stimulate stakeholders to share information about their own experiences.
Climate change adaptation policies and actions are increasingly being developed and implemented at EU, transnational, national and urban level. Case studies play an important role in supporting local and regional decision-makers in their efforts to cope with the effects of climate change by demonstrating the implementation of real adaptation measures. These measures are often initiated to meet a range of policy objectives and bring co-benefits, such as habitat restoration, preserving biodiversity, urban redevelopment, improved health and well-being in cities, and disaster risk reduction, as well as climate change adaptation and resilience.
