European Topic Centre on Climate change Adaptation (2022-2026)

The European Topic Centre on Climate Change Adaptation and LULUCF (ETC CA) is a Consortium of 16 European organisations with expertise in climate change adaptation and Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF), working in partnership with the European Environment Agency under a framework partnership agreement for the period 2022-2026.

The ETC CA assists the European Environment Agency (EEA) in implementing and developing EU legislation and policy by monitoring and assessing climate change impacts, hazards and adaptation as well as LULUCF. It also contributes to the harmonisation, quality assessment and sharing of data and/or information. The most important policy process supported is the EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change as part of the EU Green Deal.

The ETC CA’s main activities are:

  • To produce a knowledge base and indicators across sectors and regions.
  • To elaborate integrated and systemic assessments of climate change vulnerabilities and natural hazard risks to society and ecosystems.
  • To monitor, report and evaluate climate change adaptation strategies, plans, options and measures.
  • To update, evaluate and improve the European Climate Adaptation Platform (Climate-ADAPT), thus contributing to better-informed decision‑making

FT is working on the interim EU adaptation platform of CLIMATE-adapt (new content, case studies, adaptation option), the development and assessment of adaptation reporting and the topic of urban and local adaptation.
