CAN Europe Positions

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 Adaptation Strategy is the first attempt to set out EU-wide adaptation and climate resilience and it sets a solid precedence for a more collective, coordinated and transboundary approach towards addressing climate impacts in Europe.

However, further efforts are needed across Europe to address the challenges posed by a fast-changing climate, namely the temperature increase and its economic impacts. The way forward should consist of guaranteeing ambitious adaptation plans and setting an EU budget that supports effective climate adaptation and mainstreaming across all policy areas.
