Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction - Regional Office for Europe (UNDRR ROE)

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the consequences of systematically underinvesting in resilience. Even before the world brings the COVID-19 disaster under control, we will all be demanding: “Never again.” At the same time, we know that there is another crisis unfolding – the climate emergencyClimate extremes and slow onset events due to climate change are happening more frequently and with greater intensity than expected. The impacts of climate change and the COVID-19 crisis underline the systemic, cascading and compound nature of risks and the need to strengthen the resilience of our societal systems. This document provides a set of risk-centered recommendations critical to informing the revision of the existing EU Strategy on Climate Change Adaptation. The revised EU Strategy on Climate Change Adaptation can strengthen resilience today for the risks of tomorrow.
