For EU Member States, information is based on their official adaptation reporting: 2023 and 2021 adaptation reporting under the Regulation on the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action (see EU Adaptation ReportingClimate-ADAPT Country Profiles). Note: The relevant information has been copied from the EU official reporting on adaptation (submitted until 15 November 2023), without further elaborating the contents of the text. Some information, valid at the time of reporting, may no longer be valid today.

The health status of the population is accounted for in the vulnerability indicator developed to assess the degree of Slovenia’s vulnerability at the national and municipal levels for the success of monitoring and evaluation.

Since 2019, the research project "Establishment of monitoring of vectors and vector-borne diseases in Slovenia", co-funded by the Climate Change Fund, is carried out by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Ljubljana with partners. The aim of the project is to establish standardized procedures for monitoring mosquitoes and sandflies and determine the exact species of the diseases vectors as well as the prevalence of medically important pathogens in vectors, such as Dengue virus, Zika virus, Yellow fever virus, West Nile virus and Chikungunya virus. Data on the presence and distribution of the vectors and vector-borne pathogens together with environmental data, will be the basis for the risk assessment of emerging pathogen introduction of and the impact it will have on public health in Slovenia. The research will contribute both to the recognition of the current state, as well as to the control of the spread of emerging pathogens in Slovenia. The data will be the basis for continuous monitoring of vectors and emerging microorganisms in Slovenia. An early warning system for emerging pathogens in Slovenia will be established. The collected data will not only be useful for Slovenian public health professionals, but also for other European countries, as warmer temperatures have allowed many disease-carrying vectors to expand their distribution northwards and to higher altitudes in Europe.

Information from EEA report. Climate change and health: the national policy overview in Europe (2022)

National policies on climate change adaptation and national health strategies were analysed to identify the coverage of climate-related impacts on health (physical, mental, and social) and the types of interventions addressing them. The report provides a European overview, while the geographical coverage of various aspects of national policies across Europe can be visualized using the map viewer. The results for Slovenia are summarised here.
