Climate Change Strategies

European Environment Agency member countries are at different stages of preparing, developing and implementing national climate change adaptation strategies. These depend on the magnitude of observed impacts, the nature of present and future vulnerability and the country’s adaptation capacity.

In January 2010, all countries submitted information on their adaptation plans in their 5th National Communication to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Since then countries regularly update their progress to the EU. On the following pages are brief summaries of  adaptation strateges from  the UK, Germany and Sweden. More information on EEA nations’ progress towards national adaptation strategies is available at the European Climate Adaptation Platform (Climate-ADAPT).
