Identifying main adaptation concerns and setting a strategic direction

2.6 Identifying main adaptation concerns and setting a strategic direction

The strategic direction should be defined in terms of what is intended to be achieved and what the targets and objectives are (short-term by the 2030s, medium-term by the 2050s, long-term by the 2080/2100s), based on climate change, socio-economic development and other non-climatic factors.

Main concerns may be impacts and risks that:

  • are faced already today;
  • will increase due to climate change;
  • will affect systems with long life span or key infrastructure (e.g. transport infrastructure and built environment);
  • will affect systems irreversibly;
  • will increase due to additional non-climate drivers (e.g. problems with health issues will increase due to climate change and the growing group of vulnerable elderly).
