  • Climate change is having a variety of impacts on our health, ecosystems and economy, often in interaction with other factors such as land-use change. Many economic sectors are directly dependent on climatic conditions and are already facing the impact of climate change in areas such as agriculture, forestry, beach and snow tourism, health and fisheries.
  • The EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change, adopted in April 2013, provides a framework and mechanisms to improve the preparedness of the EU for current and future impacts of climate change. It recognizes that improved access to funding is critical in building a climate-resilient Europe.
  • Objectives and priorities for funding adaptation to climate change are specified in the EU Adaptation Strategy and in the LIFE Multiannual Work Programme 2018-2020.

EU Policy Areas

Proposals within the following policy areas are encouraged:

  • Urban adaptation and land use planning which limits the impacts of climate change;
  • Resilience of infrastructure, including application of blue-green infrastructure and ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation;
  • Sustainable management of water in drought-prone areas, flood and coastal management;
  • Resilience of agricultural, forestry and tourism sectors, including in island and mountain areas;
  • Support to the EU’s Outermost Regions: preparedness for extreme weather events, notably in coastal areas.
