Abstract

By 2020, developed countries will provide US$ 100 billion a year to address the needs of developing countries related to climate policy, both mitigation and adaptation policies (Copenhagen Accord, UNFCCC 2009). Among the developed countries, the European Union adopted a pan-European adaptation strategy in 2013 (European Commission 2013). Planning and funding adaptation on such a scale requires knowledge of the impacts of climate change and potential for adaptation that is both detailed and broad-based. It is necessary to identify the most important areas for action (geographical and sectoral) in order to design appropriate cost-effective policies to reduce the negative consequences of climate change, and maximise potential benefits.
