The EU’s current Adaptation Strategy was launched in 2013 with the intention to scale up the European Union’s resilience to the growing impacts of climate change that it is facing.

The Strategy is the first attempt to set out EU-wide adaption and climate resilience and it sets a solid precedence for a more collective, coordinated and transboundary approach towards addressing climate impacts in Europe. It is not a legally binding instrument and therefore does not require EU Member States to implement national adaptation plans; it encourages and guides Member States in their efforts to develop plans.

Building on the existing framework for climate adaptation in Europe, further efforts are needed across to address the challenges posed by a fast-changing climate.
