This Strategy describes the impacts of climate change by sector and outlines the Belgian institutional structure and adaptation actions on a sectoral level. Furthermore, this Strategy aims to facilitate climate change adaptation by identifying a set of principles, an outline and a roadmap towards a comprehensive national adaptation plan for Belgium.
The Strategy has three objectives:
- to provide coherence between the existing Belgian adaptation activities (evaluations of the impact and vulnerability to climate change, as well as adaptation measures already implemented)
- to better communicate on a national, European and international levels,
- to start developing a National Adaptation Plan
