UBLIC CONSULTATION – Adapting to Climate Change: an EU Strategy

28.05.2020. The European Green Deal aims to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent in the world.

Climate impacts are already being felt across Europe and are likely to increase even further in intensity and frequency. Without drastic emission reduction measures, continued climate change could increase the likelihood of serious, widespread and irreversible consequences, such as the collapse of natural ecosystems, the erosion of global food security or the displacement of people. The Commission therefore believes it is important to bring together a wide range of stakeholder views for the new Strategy to inform the design and policy options explored, as well as the appropriate level of ambition.

Europe is affected by indirect climate impacts outside the Union in many ways, such as trade, spread of infections and supply chains or migration.

The ultimate goal of climate change adaptation strategies is to protect people, the planet and prosperity from environmental impacts. By promoting global adaptation actions together with accelerated emission reductions, the EU can help ensure the well-being of EU citizens, safeguard our natural environment and cultural heritage, and protect our investments and economic assets.

Feedback period from 14 May 2020 to 20 August 2020
