Commission staff working document: Adaptation preparedness scoreboard country fiches

Source(s):  European Commission (EC)

This staff working document collects the adaptation preparedness scoreboard country fiches for each EU member state. Under Action 1 of the EU’s strategy on adaptation to climate change (COM(2013)216), in collaboration with the member states, the commission developed an ‘adaptation preparedness scoreboard’. Using the scoreboard, the commission prepared country fiches on each member state in an iterative consultation process. The country fiches assess the member states’ adaptation policy, including the content of NASs and plans, for the following aspects:

  • Institutional structure
  • Quality of national vulnerability assessments
  • Knowledge creation (national observation systems in relevant sectors2 and climate modelling), transfer and use
  • Action plans: - Quality (incl. the basis used for assessment of adaptation options)  - Actual implementation mechanisms
  • Funding mechanisms
  • Mainstreaming into sectoral policies, in particular: - Disaster risk reduction - Spatial planning - Environmental impact assessment (EIA) (how the directive is transposed)  - Insurance policy 
  • Transboundary cooperation
  • Monitoring mechanisms in different sectors and governance levels 

The fiches are based on internal work by the commission and on targeted assistance from an external contractor. They also served as input to the assessment of Action 1 of the strategy during its evaluation.
