European Commission (EC)
This Green Paper examines climate change impacts in Europe, the case for action and policy responses in the EU. It focuses on the role of the European Union (EU), but takes account of the prominent role of Member State, regional and local authorities in any efficient adaptation strategy.
As the adaptation challenge is global by its very nature, the Green Paper also raises the external dimension and looks at adaptation measures in Europe that could also apply to other parts of the world, and the opportunity for the EU to provide international leadership in this area.
