Romania, Ukraine and Moldova: Climate change adaptation strategy and action plan for Danube Delta region

This document lays out a foundation for transboundary action for adaptation in the Danube Delta region. Based on the outcomes of the vulnerability assessment, it focuses both on facilitating the adaptation of natural systems and reducing human pressures on ecosystems while improving quality of life. The list of measures suggested here is far from being exhaustive; rather, it highlights urgent needs and sets the overall strategic direction.

Sectors particularly vulnerable to climate change include water resources, agriculture, and human health. Reducing the vulnerabilities in each sector is possible though targeted policy interventions, developing and enforcing robust environmental protection legislation, and encouraging the involvement of civil society and the general public in working to mitigate the effects of climate change. This document will give a short overview of the impact of climate change on water, biodiversity and various sectors of economy, as well as the highest priority adaptation measures; a more comprehensive list of measures can be found in the adaptation action plan.
