Report from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council on the implementation of the EU strategy on adaptation to climate change

Source(s):  European Commission (EC)

This report evaluates the state of implementation of the EU adaptation strategy. In line with the Commission’s better regulation guidelines, the evaluation was carried out according to five criteria: (i) effectiveness, (ii) efficiency, (iii) relevance, (iv) coherence and (v) EU added value. A thorough assessment according to these criteria can be found in the accompanying staff working document.

Overall, the strategy has delivered on its objectives, with progress recorded against each of its eight individual actions, which are:

  1. Encourage all Member States to adopt comprehensive adaptation strategies.
  2. Provide LIFE 22 programme funding to support capacity building and step up adaptation action in Europe.
  3. Introduce adaptation in the Covenant of Mayors 23 .
  4. Bridge the knowledge gap.
  5. Further develop Climate-ADAPT 24 as the one-stop shop for adaptation information in Europe.
  6. Enable the climate proofing of the common agricultural policy, the cohesion policy and the common fisheries policy.
  7. Ensure more resilient infrastructure.
  8. Promote insurance and other financial products for resilient investment and business decisions.
