Recommendations on priority measures for EU policy mainstreaming on adaptation – Task 3 report (2011)

Description

The report screens the EU key policy areas with a specific focus on policy areas where currently no or little adaptation efforts have been made (e.g. energy, transport and infrastructure, urban areas and agriculture policies) regarding their ability to deal with climate change impacts (= climate proofing). Based on the review of existing measures suitable for climate change adaptation in key policies and interviews with EC key representatives, further measures necessary to respond to the impacts of climate change as well as adjustments of existing measures have been identified, also considering possible supportive actions for “climate proofing” (i.e. through elaborating guidelines, establishing funding provisions).
