Urban adaptation to climate change in Europe 2016 - Transforming cities in a changing climate (2016)

Description

The report gives an overview of action that can be taken to adapt cities in Europe and the progress made over the last couple of years, and it puts this in relation to the future challenges that the impacts of climate change pose. The report provides food for thought about reviewing and adjusting urban adaptation to climate change. The report targets local, regional, national and European governments and organisations as well as experts and researchers concerned with urban adaptation. Beyond that, it includes perspectives and ideas that may interest communities, individual citizens or businesses too.
