Even if greenhouse gas emissions were halted today, the impact of climate change will be felt for decades to come. Weather and climate-related events are already causing disruption across the world, and the future costs for economy and society will depend, not only on efforts taken to mitigate them, but also to adapt to climate change. The European Commission’s new Climate Adaptation Strategy, to be published at the end of February, aims to address these concerns and propose measures for increasing climate resilience in the EU.

This EPC online Policy Dialogue will serve as an opportunity to discuss the European Commission’s new Strategy on Climate Adaptation and its main goals. The discussion will focus on the challenges, and prospects or creating a climate-resilient built-environment that can bring wider benefits for the environment, society and the economy. The Policy Dialogue will be chaired by Annika Hedberg, Head of the EPC Sustainable Prosperity for Europe Programme.
