Adaptation Strategy of the EU 

The EU Adaptation Strategy (2013) aims for better preparedness at the Community level, increased opportunities to respond to the impacts of climate change at all administrative levels and better coordination. 

The EU strategy emphasises the role of the national adaptation strategies and integrating adaptation in all relevant policies at all levels. Responses to the impacts of climate change have also been incorporated into the common EU policies, including the common agricultural policy, guidelines for the transport sector, Water Framework Directive and Floods Directive.
