The EU Commission has issued this policy paper on how Europe can improve its resilience to climate change. The paper establishes a framework for action, focusing on:

• building a stronger knowledge base on the risks and impacts of climate change.
• taking account of climate change impact in key EU policies.
• combining different policy measures to best effect – innovative funding (including market-based schemes) may be required to facilitate adaptation.
• supporting wider international efforts on adaptation.
• working in partnership with national, regional and local authorities.
