ClimateCost Policy Brief No 2: The Costs and Benefits of Adaptation in Europe: Review Summary and Synthesis (2010)

Description

This briefing note summarises the review and synthesis work on the costs (and benefits) of adaptation to climate change in Europe. The research received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme. The review has covered European, sectoral, regional and national studies, as well as global studies that report information for Europe. This information is important in raising awareness of potential adaptation needs, providing a first indication of possible adaptation financing needs, and in providing information to help develop European level and Member State strategies for adaptation.
