Adapting to Climate Change (White Paper)

According to the Commission climate change requires adaptation measures in key policy sectors such as health and social affairs, agriculture and infrastructure. In order to supplement the expenses of Member States and to share burdens, adaptation measures could be financed through EU spending programmes.


It does make sense to take adapatation measures at an early stage. However, since Member States are affected by climate change to a different extent, adaptation measures should be planned and financed by Member States in the first place.
