Vector-borne diseases and climate change: a European perspective

The transmission of a wide range of vector-borne diseases in Europe was already impacted by climate change and it will continue to do so in the decades to come. Observed shift of ticks to elevated altitudes and latitudes showcases the changing climate already today.

Assessing Adaptation Knowledge in Europe: Vulnerability to Climate Change - Final Report

There is extensive need in assessing risks and vulnerabilities to climate change because observed climate change has already led to a wide range of impacts on environmental systems and society with increased damage costs from natural disasters. This report is a knowledge assessment study designed to synthesise the frameworks, processes and methods being used to assess vulnerability in Europe

Smart Specialisation in the Context of Blue Economy – Analysis of Desalination Sector

One of the emerging blue economy sectors with considerable “greening” potential for a stable water supply in the ever-growing areas with increasing water imbalances is the desalination sector. This report aims at analysing the sector from the innovation, the EU policy and regional perspectives - in the latter with examples of implementation of desalination technologies in the three types of regions with specific water supply issues across Europe.

Using Climate-ADAPT: How to submit a new item in Climate-ADAPT database

This video explains how registered content providers can submit any type of database item, such as publications and reports, information portals, guidance documents, tools, research and knowledge projects, organisations, videos, through the 'Share your information' page. It also stresses how important is to carefully prepare quality content and how to use the right keywords for better searchability

Using Climate-ADAPT: Review process for a submitted item

This video explains how the review process works, thus presenting a clear timeline of actions, as well as the editing and communication efforts that might be needed until the final publication of a new item. This is the 3rd video of a series of 3, including: Account creation and eligibility criteria for new Climate-ADAPT database items How to submit a new item in Climate-ADAPT database

Climate-ADAPT Case studies

The focus of the Climate-ADAPT webinar was on a specific type of information included in the platform: the case studies. We aimed to: Disseminate the basic features of the Climate-ADAPT case studies: criteria for their identification, structure for their description, development process, and current state of the case study collection

Climate-ADAPT Urban Content

Climate-ADAPT includes much data and information relevant for urban adaptation, including publications, reports, research projects, case studies, and adaptation options that can be used to support local action by decision-makers. In addition, Climate-ADAPT has two specific urban decision support tools that are among the most visited elements of the platform: the Urban Adaptation Support Tool (UAST)   and the Urban Adaptation Map Viewer (UAMV)

Climate-ADAPT Adaptation Support Tool

One element of Climate-ADAPT is the  Adaptation   Support   Tool  (AST) . The AST has been developed in the context of the EU  adaptation  strategy to  support  and assist users in developing climate change  adaptation  strategies and plans by providing guidance

The Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP)

The UK Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP) is a partnership between scientists, government, governmental agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and industry. The primary aim of the MCCIP is to provide a co-ordinating framework, so as to be able to transfer high quality evidence on marine climate change impacts, and guidance on adaptation and related advice, to policy advisers and decision-makers

Dynamic information management approach for the implementation of climate resilient adaptation packages in European regions

The IMPETUS project aims at accelerating Europe’s climate change response and turning commitments into concrete action, developing innovative measures to make its regions more resilient. Moreover, the project explores the synergies between climate change mitigation, supporting regional socio-economic growth and stability, and transition of communities to ecological sustainability and resilience

Deployment and Assessment of Predictive modelling, environmentally sustainable and emerging digital technologies and tools for improving the resilience of IWW against Climate change and other extremes

PLOTO aims at increasing the resilience of the Inland Waterways (IWW) infrastructures and the connected land- infrastructures, thus ensuring reliable network availability under unfavourable conditions, such as extreme weather, accidents and other hazards. The goal is to combine downscaled climate change scenarios (applied to IWW infrastructures) with simulation tools and actual data, to provide the relevant authorities and their operators with an integrated tool able to support more effective management of their infrastructures at strategic and operational levels

Framework for defining climate mitigation pathways based on understanding and integrated assessment of climate impacts, adaptation strategies and societal transformation

KNOWING aims at developing a modelling framework to help understand and quantify the interactions between the impacts and risks of climate change, mitigation pathways and adaptation strategies. The framework will be used to assess the advancing climate science and further broadening and deepening the knowledge base is essential to inform the societal transition towards a climate-neutral and climate-resilient society by 2050, as well as towards a more ambitious greenhouse gas reduction target by 2030

Danube Floodplain

During the last decades, Europe suffered major catastrophic floods along the Danube. Therefore the Flood Directive asks for adequate and coordinated measures to reduce flood risk without conflicting WFD objectives


The overall goal of WaterPro is to develop eco-efficient tools and models for good water quality management and protection for the Northern Periphery and Arctic (NPA) areas . The main focus is in controlling and managing runoffs from agriculture and mineral extraction sites which both are important sectors economically but cause pollution threats to the water and soil environment

Alliance for Global Water Adaptation

AGWA is an international NGO working across technical and policy programs to mainstream resilient water resources management, focusing on the connections between water resources and climate adaptation and mitigation. AGWA works with and through its member network to develop and crowdsource solutions across disciplines, institutions, and sectors

Decision-making and economics of adaptation to climate change in the fisheries and aquaculture sector

This FAO publication reviews available information on the costs and benefits of climate change adaptation in the fisheries and aquaculture sector, highlights the challenges in applying conventional appraisal and decision support tools to adaptation and reviews emerging frameworks (including low-regret actions, addressing potential lock-in, and early planning for long-term adaptation) and economic tools to appraise adaptation options in fisheries and aquaculture.

Basic criteria to assess wildfire risk at the pan-European level

This report present basic criteria that could be used for the estimation of wildfire risk at the pan-European level. The report has been elaborated in consultation with the national experts in the Expert Group on Forest Fires and represents a first attempt on establishing critical variables that may help in characterizing areas in the pan- European region on the basis of their susceptibility to suffer damage caused by wildfires.

Background report to the preparation of the Impact assessment on the EU adaptation strategy – part I

Current and projected impacts in Europe, together with their related costs, suggest that climate change will — either directly or indirectly — test the vulnerability of European society with economic, environmental, societal, geopolitical and technological risks. The security, health and quality of life of European citizens are at the core of the matter and climate change constitutes an additional pressure that challenges most of the components of human and natural systems

Baltic Sea Tourism Commission (BTC)

"The Baltic Sea Tourism Commission (BTC) is an international organization for market-oriented tourism companies and organizations in the BSR. The goal is to increase the region's attractiveness through networking and collaborations
