National Adaptation Strategy - Belgium (2010)

Description

Belgian National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy. In order to be prepared for the coming changes, the National Climate Committee has instructed members of the federal and regional (Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels) governments to prepare this adaptation strategy. Belgium now faces the challenge to further extend the scope of adaptation in order to cover all areas influenced by climate change. This holds especially for aspects which fall between the classic policy areas. Extensive linkages between the different policy areas and their adaptation efforts could lead to synergies and could further avoid maladaptation. This will ultimately lead to a more complete and coherent adaptation policy. In order to further facilitate adaptation (from a policy point of view) a set of principles, an outline and a roadmap have been identified that describe a route to a future and comprehensive national adaptation plan.
