Figure Reported effectiveness of vertical coordination mechanisms in national adaptation policy processes, relative to stages of adaptation policy process (Questions 12 and 14; 29 responding countries)
The graph combines information on countries' perceptions on the effectiveness of their vertical coordination mechanism together with information on the stage of their adaptation policy process. Bubbles indicate the number of countries in a given stage of adaptation policy process with a similar perception of the effectiveness of their vertical coordination mechanism

Figure Reported effectiveness of horizontal coordination mechanisms in national adaptation policy processes, relative to stages of adaptation policy process (Questions 12 and 13; 29 responding countries)
The graph combines information on countries' perceptions on the effectiveness of their horizontal coordination mechanism together with information on the stage of their adaptation policy process. Bubble sizes indicate the number of countries in a given stage of adaptation policy process with a similar perception of the effectiveness of their horizontal coordination mechanism.

Figure Role of transport in national adaptation strategies and plans
At least 21 EEA member countries have developed national adaptation strategies (NAS) or plans and that such strategies are under development in at least five additional countries (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Italy and Liechtenstein). The transport sector is specifically addressed in most of those strategies and plans with some detail (including countries such as Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands,  Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and United Kingdom)

SPARQL D source code Climate change mitigation policies and measures (PAM) - 2015 data
This query returns a number of policies and measures (PAM) implemented or planned by European countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Most of these PAMs have been reported to the European Commission, the United Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) or the EEA.

Video Are we ready for climate change?
We need to reduce global greenhouse-gas emissions substantially to avoid the worst impacts of climate change around the world and in Europe. The severity of climate change will depend on how much and how quickly we can cut greenhouse-gas emissions. We also need to adapt to our changing climate.

Publication National monitoring, reporting and evaluation of climate change adaptation in Europe
This report provides new insights into adaptation monitoring, reporting and evaluation systems at the national level in Europe and constitutes the first attempt to consolidate emerging information across European countries. It aims to offer reliable and targeted information to support the effective and efficient implementation of climate adaptation policies and actions at the national level in Europe.

Article Are we ready for climate change?
Climate change is causing a variety of impacts to our health, ecosystems and economy. These impacts are likely to become more serious in the coming decades. If not addressed, these impacts could prove very costly, in terms of ill health, adverse effects on ecosystems, and damaged property and infrastructure. Many adaptation projects are already underway across Europe to prepare for a changing climate.

Article Living in a changing climate
Our climate is changing. Scientific evidence shows that the global average temperature is rising, and rainfall patterns are shifting. It also shows that glaciers, Arctic sea-ice and the Greenland ice sheet are melting. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Report shows that the warming since the mid-20th century is predominantly due to an increase in greenhouse-gas concentrations as a result of emissions from human activities. Combustion of fossil fuels and changes in land use are largely responsible for this increase.

Article Climate change and cities
Most Europeans now live in cities, so the choices we make about urban infrastructure will have a large influence on how well we cope with climate change. More frequent rainfall, flooding, and heatwaves are likely to be among the challenges that Europe’s cities will face from climate change. We asked Holger Robrecht, Deputy Regional Director of ICLEI, what cities are doing to adapt to climate change.

Highlight Living in a changing climate
Our climate is changing. Warmer temperatures, changes in precipitation levels and patterns, or extreme weather events are already impacting Europe, and these impacts result in real losses. In a series of short articles and interviews, the European Environment Agency’s Signals 2015 presents an overview of what causes climate change and what climate change means for human health, the environment, and the economy.
