Advancing towards climate resilience in Europe —Status of reported national adaptation actions in 2021

Description

By 15 March 2021, Member States had reported information on their national adaptation actions to the European Commission, following the provisions of  Regulation (EU) 2018/1999 on the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action (GovReg), for the first time. Non-EU EEA member countries were invited to provide the same information on a voluntary basis. 

This EEA report provides a synthesis of how all EU Member States and Türkiye are adapting to climate change and are reporting on their adaptation actions. The report summarises how these countries are progressing through the adaptation policy cycle. It gives a snapshot of the situation in 2021, but where possible, compares this with earlier information to describe progress throughout recent years.

To provide a consistent overview of the reporting, the information in this report is structured in accordance with the steps listed in the Adaptation Support Tool.

In 2023, Member States will update their reporting on their national adaptation actions. For the first time, EU Member States will provide a progress report on adaptation against the different dimensions of the energy union: decarbonisation, energy efficiency, energy security, the internal energy market and research, innovation and competitiveness. Updated assessments will be needed to describe the key aspects of adaptation in Europe and provide input to different EU and international policy progress reports.
