As part of the European Green Deal, the EU launched the new EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change. The Communication of the Commission, Forging a climate-resilient union – the new EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change, builds on the 2013 Strategy. It comprises actions to implement the EU’s long-term vision, which looks forward to 2050. In this vision, when we aim to have reached climate neutrality, the European Union will be a climate-resilient society that is fully adapted to the unavoidable impacts of climate change, with reinforced adaptive capacity and minimal vulnerability in line with the Paris Agreement and the proposed European Climate Law.
The strategy includes a section on promoting nature-based solutions for adaptation, and will help strengthen resilience and reduce vulnerability to climate change.
