Urban adaptation to climate change in Europe – indicators and maps

Description

The recently published EEA report 'Urban adaptation to climate change in Europe' includes several indicators and thematic maps such as on heat waves, flooding, social sensitivity and factors of adaptive capacity. These maps are now also made available on the interactive Eye on Earth information service. In this form, the maps allow users to explore data from up to 500 cities in Europe and get a quick impression of some of the adaptation challenges in Europe’s cities. Furthermore, users can combine the different maps from the report choose to incorporate datasets made available by other organisations or individuals through Eye on Earth.
