The European Climate Adaptation Platform (Climate Adapt) aims to support Europe in adapting to climate change. The platform provides knowledge on climate change adaptation actions in each of the Member States. In addition, Climate Adapt collects knowledge on climate change adaptation in relation to policies, guidelines, aid funds, research and tools.


The European Climate Adaptation Platform Climate-ADAPT is a partnership between the European Commission, EC Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG CLIMA), and the European Environment Agency (EEA). Climate-ADAPT is maintained by the EEA with the support of the European Topic Centre on Climate Change Adaptation and LULUCF (ETC CA).


Climate-ADAPT has 5 main objectives: 


  1. Providing trusted data and information. The European Climate Adaptation Platform (Climate- ADAPT) provides reliable, accessible, up-to-date and high-quality knowledge on climate change hazards, vulnerability and adaptation.

  2. Promoting solutions for action. Climate-ADAPT provides actionable knowledge to enable better informed adaptation planning, policies and practice.

  3. Empowering people for action at multiple levels. Climate-ADAPT supports more coherent and effective adaptation policies at all governance levels and in all policy sectors in Europe.

  4. Driving regional and community resilience. Climate‑ADAPT provides direct knowledge support to at least 150 European regions and communities under the EU mission on adaptation to climate change to become climate resilient by 2030.

  5. Supporting international adaptation action and exchanges. Climate-ADAPT helps to increase climate resilience globally and supports cooperation and exchanges with third countries on climate adaptation at all levels.
