PLACARD foresight workshop, facing the future of Europe’s climate – EU governance and climate risks at a crossroads

11–12 December 2018, European Commission, Brussels

The second PLACARD Foresight workshop showcased the potential of foresight methods in increasing climate resilience across Europe. Within the workshop we explored how Juncker’s “5 futures of Europe” can be used for assessing climate and DRR risks in Europe, and for designing and characterising effective response strategies, for three cases (heat and drought, fluvial flooding, coastal impacts).

EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change - evaluation outcomes

  1. 1. EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change - evaluation outcomes - Maddalena Dali DG Climate Action, European Commission Foresight workshop 12 December 2018
  2. 2. EU adaptation strategy (2013) 1. Promote action by all member states a Encourage all MS to adopt adaptation strategies a Provide funding to help them build resilience a Launch voluntary adaptation initiative for towns and cities - Covenant of Mayors 2. Make EU-level action 'climate-proof' a Further integrate climate adaptation needs into key vulnerable sectors eg agriculture, fisheries, energy, regional development a Make infrastructure more resilient a Promote insurance against disasters 3. Make decision-making better informed a Address knowledge gaps through research a Develop European climate adaptation platform as 'one-stop shop' for adaptation information in Europe – Climate-ADAPT a12 November: Report on the evaluation Under evaluation!
  3. 3. Findings – what has been achieved? 1. We are on track to achieve the specific and operational objectives by 2020. 2. 25 MS have NAS in place (but implementation/monitoring lagging behind) 3. 60 ongoing adaptation projects under LIFE disseminating solutions and best practice 4. 26% of all EU cities and 40% of the cities over 150000 inhabitants are estimated to have local adaptation plans 5. Knowledge base enlarged, but gaps not closed and new ones emerged. 6. Climate-ADAPT successful in disseminating information
  4. 4. Findings – value of the strategy • With increasing evidence of climate change, EUAS continues to address real needs. • EUAS highly coherent with other EU policies • It enables the integration of adaptation in key sectors, governance levels and EU policies. In its absence, less progress in e.g.: a) EU macro-regions b) local adaptation c) knowledge available to decision makers d) best practice transfer (through LIFE) • Administrative costs low and mostly limited to the Commission
  5. 5. Lessons learnt • Align to international agreements (Paris, Sendai, SDGs) • Bridge emerging knowledge gaps through science-policy dialogue and improved modelling (high end climate change, spill overs) • Better integrate the strategy’s actions • Implement and monitor national strategies • Encourage local adaptation action through MS and EU incentives • Assess and address territorial and social differences in vulnerability to climate change
  6. 6. Lessons learnt • Increase coherence between adaptation and sustainable development, biodiversity and disaster risk reduction • Further mainstreaming into EU policy on trade, maritime policy, fisheries and public health • Promote the use of ecosystem-based adaptation solutions Better use of • enhanced Earth observation (Copernicus) • standards for adaptation • sustainable finance taxonomy for more • climate-proofing of infrastructure • risk management through insurance • private investment in adaptation
  7. 7. Generally successful mainstreaming in EU policies and internationally BUT On Disaster Risk Reduction: Strategic and operational coherence between DRR and adaptation should be further enhanced across all levels of governance How: integration of adaptation perspectives in methodologies and indicators, knowledge for risk assessment and a more systematic dialogue between practitioners of adaptation and practitioners of disaster risk.
  8. 8. Relevant action already foreseen • Adaptation into the implementation of the Energy Union Governance and the National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) • In the next MFF, channel public and private funding to adaptation through ERDF (30%), cohesion funding (37%), Horizon Europe (35%), CAP (40%) and LIFE (% indicating combined climate target for mitigation/adaptation) • Making cohesion funding conditional to disaster risk management plans consistent with national adaptation strategies • Strategy on Financing Sustainable Growth with the aim to mobilise private finance towards climate and sustainable objectives (taxonomy)
  9. 9. ÙPoss. review/revision of the EU Adaptation Strategy after 2019 What's next?
