Regions 2020 project - maps and datasets


'Regions 2020' provides a first prospective analysis of the likely regional impact of four of the biggest challenges facing Europe: globalisation, demographic change, climate change, and the energy supply. Using a series of indicators, the maps show the degree of vulnerability of European regions to these challenges, and examines the potential disparities that these may generate across the EU.To analyse the impact of climate change on the EU NUTS-2 regions an index was constructed, employing information on the regions vulnerability to droughts and floods, potential effects on agriculture, fisheries and tourism as well as urban and coastal areas, taking into account temperature and precipitation changes. Furthermore GDP per head is used to proxy the adaptation potential of the regions. With this index the EU NUTS-2 regions were divided in 3 groups according to their vulnerability to climate change. For examining the maps, a recent browser like Google Chrome is required.
