Adaptation to climate change

Climate change will modify actual risk levels and therefore challenge design guidelines and procedures for the operation and maintenance of the road infrastructure. There will be an increase in unusual climatic events, with significant impacts on infrastructure, operations, and the economy as a whole

ANDROID report: disaster resilience education and research roadmap for Europe 2030

The roadmap sets out five key challenges and opportunities in moving from 2015 to 2030 and aimed at addressing the challenges of the recently announced Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. It brings together existing literature in the field, as well as the results of various analysis and study projects undertaken by project partners, and represents an important output of the ANDROID disaster resilience network

IPCC Fifth Assessment Report, WGII Chapter 23: Europe

This is the WG II Chapter dedicated on Europe in the IPCC 5th Assessment Report. This chapter synthesizes the scientific knowledge on past and future impacts of climate change, vulnerability and adaptation in Europe

IPCC Fifth Assessment Report, WGII Chapter 6: Ocean Systems

This is the chapter on ocean systems in the IPCC 5th Assessment Report. It  synthesizes the scientific knowledge on past and future physical and chemical changes in the ocean and on their impacts on ecosystems and human activities, including adaptation options and limitations

IPCC, WGI report, 2007: The Physical Science Basis

This report is published as part of the Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), intended to report and assess scientific, technical and socio-economic information concerning climate change, its potential effects, and options for adaptation and mitigation. It will be superseded by the Fifth Assessment Report (expected in 2014)

IPCC WG2, 2007, chapter 8: Human Health

Chapter on human health of IPCC WG2's 4th Assessment Report. This chapter describes the observed and projected health impacts of climate change, current and future populations at risk, and the strategies, policies and measures that have been and can be taken to reduce impacts

IPCC IV AR, WG2: Europe

Chapter 12 of the IPCC 4th Assessment Report reviews existing literature on the anticipated impacts, adaptation and vulnerability of Europe to climate change during the 21st century. The area covered under Europe in this report includes all countries from Iceland in the west to Russia (west of the Urals) and the Caspian Sea in the east, and from the northern shores of the Mediterranean and Black Seas and the Caucasus in the south to the Arctic Ocean in the north

Sharing adaptation information across Europe

The EEA report ‘Sharing adaptation information across Europe’ is a first evaluation of the Climate-ADAPT portal carried out by the EEA with support of the ETC/CCA. It provides an evaluation of the fulfilment of the Climate-ADAPT objectives and was carried out by the EEA as a process evaluation with a focus on learning

Conference of European Directors of Roads

Conference of European Directors of Roads is a network of Directors in charge of roads and roads transport, aiming to collaborate on road related topics, as for instance climate change adaptation. In 2012, the task group has developed a document to assess the impacts of climate change on roads and have proposed several options to adapt

Scottish Climate Change Impacts Partnership (SCCIP)

The Scottish Climate Change Impacts Partnership (SCCIP) used to be an initiative to bring together stakeholders in Scotland to collectively address and prepare for the impacts of climate change. SCCIP was established to “increase the resilience of organisations and infrastructure in Scotland to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by the impacts of climate change”

Equity Explorer

The Equity Explorer allows users to visualize the multiple dimensions of climate equity by using a collection of indicators. The indicators include emissions, level of development, vulnerability and capacitiy to adapt to climate impacts, mitigation potential, and benefits of action

Natural Hazards: direct costs and losses due to the disruption of production processes

In recent decades, Europe has witnessed a significant increase in direct damages from natural hazards. A further damage increase is expected due to the on-going accumulation of people and economic assets in risk-prone areas and the effects of climate change, for instance, on the severity and frequency of drought events in the Mediterranean basin
