Urban adaptation to climate change in Europe: challenges and opportunities for cities


This report provides a European overview of the challenges and opportunities of urban adaptation to climate change and links them with these other initiatives that provide more detailed information on local climate change impacts, and good practice guidance. As such it facilitates the debate on European and national support for urban adaptation, feeds into the European Climate Adaptation Platform Climate‑ADAPT, and supports an effective participation of local governments in the development and implementation of the 2013 EU adaptation strategy (EC, 2009b) by providing supportive information.
