The report highlights that vulnerable regions and sectors vary widely across Europe. Key economic sectors, which will need to adapt through integration within sectoral policies at European and (sub-) national levels, include energy supply, health, water management, agriculture, tourism and transport. The report shows that there is a lack of information on good practices in adaptation actions and their costs.
The report shows there is a need for improved international monitoring and reporting mechanisms by countries and international organisations. A European Clearing House on climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation will make information widely available to users across Europe. It will be underpinned by the EU Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS), the services to be generated by the EU Kopernikus programme on global monitoring for environment and security and the WHO Climate, Environment and Health Information System (CEHAIS). Our institutes are committed to contribute to the further development of these systems and services.
