About Climate-ADAPT

The European Climate Adaptation Platform (Climate-ADAPT) is a partnership between the European Commission (DG CLIMA, DG Joint Research Centre and other DGs) and the European Environment Agency.

Climate-ADAPT aims to support Europe in adapting to climate change. It is an initiative of the European Commission and helps users to access and share data and information on:

  • Expected climate change in Europe
  • Current and future vulnerability of regions and sectors
  • EU, national and transnational adaptation strategies and actions
  • Adaptation case studies and potential adaptation options
  • Tools that support adaptation planning

Climate-ADAPT organizes information under the following main entry points:

  • Adaptation information (Observations and scenarios, Vulnerabilities and risks, Adaptation measures, National adaptation strategies, Research projects)
  • EU sector policies (Agriculture and forestry, Biodiversity, Coastal areas, Disaster risk reduction, Financial, Health, Infrastructure, Marine and fisheries, Water management)
  • Transnational regions, Countries and Urban areas
  • Tools (Adaptation Support Tool, Case Study Search Tool, Map Viewer)

The platform includes a database that contains quality checked information that can be easily searched.
