SOER Message Adapting to climate change — key message 3
Vulnerabilities differ across regions, sectors and communities, with pronounced consequences expected in the Mediterranean basin, north-western and central-eastern Europe and the Arctic. Many coastal zones, mountains and areas prone to river floods are particularly vulnerable, as are cities and urban areas. In some sectors and regions new opportunities may occur. However, with increases in both temperatures and the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, adverse effects are likely to dominate in the medium to long term.

SOER Message Adapting to climate change — key message 4
So far 11 European countries, and a few regions and cities, have adopted adaptation strategies. Mainstreaming adaptation in EU policies, strengthening the knowledge base and facilitating information sharing are key levers for building resilience. The Adaptation White Paper of the European Commission constitutes a significant step in the development of an EU strategy.

SOER Message Adapting to climate change — key message 5
Adaptation strategies can reduce vulnerabilities and strengthen resilience. An increasing number of options have been identified, including no-regret measures that are relevant under all plausible future scenarios. In addition to technological solutions, adaptation can support resilience through ecosystem-based options, green infrastructure and adequate governance. Regional and sectoral differences in climate change vulnerabilities and socio-economic conditions make adaptation a context- and location-specific challenge.

SOER Message Adapting to climate change — key message 6
The costs of adaptation in Europe could amount to billions of Euro per year in the medium and long term. Although the economics of adaptation options so far relies on limited information and a few modelling tools, assessments suggest that timely and proportionate adaptation makes economic, social and environmental sense, and is likely to be far less costly than inaction.

Figure Aggregated assessment of hazardous substances in biota measured in the North East Atlantic, Baltic Sea, and Mediterranean Sea
The pies show the proportion of stations on map with low (green), moderate (yellow) and high (red) concentrations in the latest monitoring year for each of the seven hazardous substances. In the case of the three metals the boundary between moderate and high is set using foodstuff limits. The arrow indicates the general trend for each category where one can be identified
