Country Profiles

EEA member countries are at different stages of preparing, developing and implementing national adaptation strategies (NASs) and plans (NAPs).

The country pages and maps below show the information reported per country under the national adaptation actions of the 2018 Regulation on the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action. Additional details of the reporting are specified in an implementing act. By 15 March 2021, and every two years thereafter, Member States report to the Commission information on their national adaptation actions. A selection of the reporting is presented for each country along with a link to the public submission of the reporting, where all information and additional files submitted are available. To provide a consistent overview of the reporting, information is structured in the same way on each country page. See the Summary for sources of the documents named in other sections.

  • Summary: an overview of key items, their status and links;
  • Assessment: climate modelling, projections, scenarios, methods and tools, observed and future impacts and key sectors affected;
  • Legal and policy framework: institutional frameworks and governance on the national and subnational scale along the adaptation policy cycle, integration into sectoral policies, networks and collaboration;
  • Strategies, plans and goals: priorities, challenges, gaps, barriers and overview of national and sub-national strategies, integration in sectoral policies, plans and programs and stakeholder engagement;
  • Monitoring and Evaluation: methodology, state of play of implementation, spending on climate adaptation, progress towards reducing climate-risks, increasing adaptive capacity, meeting adaptation priorities, addressing barriers to adaptation, steps to review climate change impact and vulnerability assessments and national adaptation policy, and good practice on reviewing sub-national adaptation policies;
  • Good practice, cooperation and synergies: synergies of adaptation actions with international frameworks, cooperation in science and policy;
  • Contacts: organisation in charge, relevant websites and social media.

Select one of the three thematic maps for information on national adaptation policies (National Adaptation Strategy (NAS), National Adaptation Plan (NAP) and Sectoral Adaptation Plan (SAP)), climate change impact and vulnerability assessments or adaptation platforms and portals for each country. Click on a country on the map for direct links to related resources.

The thematic maps illustrate the reported status and information provided by the member countries. The thematic maps don’t necessary reflect the formal status in the country.

The information presented in these pages is based on the reporting according to 'Regulation (EU) 2018/1999 on the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action' and updates by the EEA member countries. However, for those pages where the information is last updated before 01/01/2021, the information presented is based on the reporting according to 'Regulation (EU) No 525/2013 on a mechanism for monitoring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions and for reporting other information relevant to climate change' and updates by the EEA member countries.'
