Finland’s National Adaptation Strategy. An integral part of the National Energy and Climate Strategy

Description

The National Adaptation Strategy gives a detailed account of the impacts of climate change in different sectors and presents measures to be taken until 2080. The main elements of the strategy are also included into this document, the National Energy and Climate Strategy, where the focus is on measures to be launched in the next 5 to 10 years. Priorities identified for increasing adaptation capacities include: (i) mainstreaming climate change impacts and adaptation into sectoral policies, (ii) addressing long-term investments, (iii) coping with extreme weather events, (iv) improving observation systems, (v) strengthening the research and development base, and (vi) inter- national cooperation.
