The European Environment Agency (EEA) has published a new report "Climate Change, Impacts and Vulnerability in Europe 2016". This is the fourth ‘Climate change, impacts and vulnerability in Europe’ report, which is published every four years. The report was presented to policymakers, the press and the wider public on 24 January 2017 jointly by Hans Bruyninckx (EEA Executive Director) and Jos Delbeke (European Commission, Director General for Climate Action).
This report is an indicator-based assessment of past and projected climate change and its impacts on ecosystems and society. It also looks at society’s vulnerability to these impacts and at the development of adaptation policies and the underlying knowledge base. This is the fourth ‘Climate change, impacts and vulnerability in Europe’ report, which is published every four years. This edition aims to support the implementation and review process of the 2013 EU Adaptation Strategy, which is foreseen for 2018, and the development of national and transnational adaptation strategies and plans.
