As part of the European Green Deal, the Commission aims to put forward a new Adaptation Strategy in early 2021, building on the current one, which was adopted in 2013.Global and European temperatures have repeatedly broken long-term records in recent years. The last five years were the hottest on record, with heatwaves, droughts and wildfires across Europe.
The online public consultation on the Adaptation Strategy invites contributions from stakeholders and citizens to inform the design of the new strategy. A blueprint for the strategy accompanies the consultation in order to provide context, indicate possible directions of development and stimulate the debate.
The online consultation is now open from 14 May until 20 August 2020.
