The European Climate Adaptation Platform Climate-ADAPT is a partnership between the European Commission and the European Environment Agency (EEA). Climate-ADAPT is maintained by the EEA with the support of the European Topic Centre on Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation (ETC/CCA).

Climate-ADAPT aims to support Europe in adapting to climate change helping 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:

  • EU Policy: EU Adaptation Policy, Adaptation in EU Policy Sectors (Agriculture, Biodiversity, Coastal areas, Forestry, Water management, Marine and fisheries, Ecosystem-based Approaches, Disaster Risk Reduction, Buildings, Energy, Transport, Health, Urban), EU Regional Policy
  • Countries, Transnational regions, Cities
  • Knowledge: Topics, Data and indicators, Research and innovation projects, Tools, Practice,
  • European Climate and Health Observatory (accessible through "Knowledge")
  • Networks

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

Climate-ADAPT complements information on the EU and its Member States' progress towards their 2030 targets on climate and energy, available on the EEA website Climate and Energy in the EU.
