Abstract

The aim of this report is to ascertain priority concerns for further climate proofing action through opposing current EU efforts to different threats, and suggest complementary options (cf. chapter 3) for the following four sectors: (1)  Energy, (2)  Transport infrastructure, (3) Urban areas, and (4) Agriculture. A final selection of measures to be assessed with a view to their costs and economic, social and environmental impacts was agreed at the first interim meeting with the Commission. Measures already part of EU wide assessment projects were not part of the assessment. In a first step (chapter 3) key policy areas have been screened to identify adaptation measures. A final selection of measures agreed with the Commission was further processed in terms of costing (chapter 4) and the assessment of impacts (chapter 5).
