This article is not up to date.
The reader is referred to a recent publication of the European Environment Agency  [http://www.eea.europa.eu/publications/climate-impacts-and-vulnerability-2012/ Climate change, impacts and vulnerability in Europe 2012].This report presents information on past and projected climate change and related impacts in Europe, based on a range of indicators. The report also assesses the vulnerability of society, human health and ecosystems in Europe and identifies those regions in Europe most at risk from climate change. Furthermore, the report discusses the principle sources of uncertainty for the indicators and notes how monitoring and scenario development can improve our understanding of climate change, its impacts and related vulnerabilities.
The European action on adaptation to climate change is described on the websites [http://www.eea.europa.eu/soer-2015/europe/climate-change-impacts-and-adaptation/ Climate change impacts and adaptation] and [https://ec.europa.eu/clima/index_en/ EU Climate Action].
A major focus is the development of the EU Clearinghouse Mechanism on Adaptation. The Clearinghouse will be an electronic portal, providing information, analytical tools and guidance documents on climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to policy makers at all levels (EU, national, regional and local). It will also be accessible to the scientific community and the public at large. It will, inter alia:
- Disseminate the best scientific information on current and projected climate change impacts and vulnerabilities;
- Provide guidelines and tools to develop adaptation strategies;
- Provide intelligent search functions for adaptation related information, including publications, research projects, adaptation measures, case studies, datasets and guidance documents; and,
- Facilitate the establishment of networks among stakeholders facing similar adaptation challenges and facilitate exchange of information across the EU
ETC-CCA - European Topic Centre on: Climate Change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation is in charge of the development and implementation of the EU Clearinghouse on climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation.
