SPARQL Climate change mitigation policies and measures (PAM)
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.

Figure Vulnerable people — the elderly are considered to be a group more sensitive to various climatic stress factors than people of a working age
The map shows the share of elderly people (>= 65 years) within a city (represented by the dot colours) to the total population (represented by dot size).

Figure Projected change in annual mean temperature (left) and projected percentage changes in annual precipitation (right)
Projected changes are for 2071-2100, compared to 1971-2000, based on the average of a multi-model ensemble forced with the RCP8.5 high emissions scenario. All changes marked with a colour (i.e. not white) are statistically significant. Individual models from the EURO-CORDEX ensemble or high-resolution models for smaller regions may show different results.

Press Release Policies put the EU on track to meet its 2020 climate and energy targets but bigger push needed for 2030
European Union (EU) greenhouse gas emissions fell almost 2 % between 2012 and 2013, putting the EU very close to its 2020 reduction target, according to new analysis from the European Environment Agency (EEA). The EU is also on track to meet two other targets to boost renewable energy and energy efficiency by 2020.

Highlight object code Extreme weather driving countries to adapt to climate change
Adapting to climate change has reached the political agenda in most European countries, according to the most comprehensive analysis of adaptation in Europe published to date. Extreme weather events and EU policies were the most common reasons for beginning to address adaptation.

Highlight Climate-forcing F-gases – new report published
Fluorinated gases (F-gases) are emitted into the atmosphere in relatively small quantities, but their effect on climate change is increasingly significant. These substances are very powerful greenhouse gases, with a warming effect thousands of times greater than CO2 in many cases.

Figure Increase in the frequency of flooding events under projected sea level rise
This map shows the multiplication factor (shown at tide gauge locations by colored dots), by which the frequency of flooding events of a given height is projected to increase between 2010 and 2100 as a result of regional sea level rise under the RCP4.5 scenario.
