Climate proofing of EU policies

Climate proofing of EU policies

This study assessed the most significant threats and challenges of climate change to the EU, focussing on policy areas of particular relevance for the EU budget and investigating where no or little action had been taken so far. To this end, the project team identified the most appropriate measures to take or to adjust and to assess against their economic, social and environmental impacts for addressing these threats until 2020. The analysis focussed on measures that are currently not subject to ongoing assessments. The outcome of the project was recommendations on how to best implement these measures within the EU policy framework. Finally, the team assessed how to establish climate-proof funding in the following key EU policy areas: the Common Agriculture Policy; Cohesion and Structural funds; TEN-E and TEN-T funds; and RTD funds related to science and technologies. FT acted as a co-coordinator and provided input to all tasks for the sectors of agriculture and transport.
