Climate change: the cost of inaction and the cost of adaptation

Description

To allow a fully informed debate on adaptation, there is a need to consider the economic aspects of adaptation. Against this background, the EEA has prepared this report with the aim:
• to identify and highlight methodological issues and uncertainties of cost estimation;
• to review existing information on economic costs of climate change at a European level;
• to highlight the need for improved information on impacts of climate change and the need to monitor the effectiveness of adaptation strategies and actions;
• to facilitate information sharing among EEA member countries and learning from 'good practice';
• to identify research needs.
