Adaptation information published on Climate-ADAPT

EEA member countries are at different stages of preparing, developing and implementing national adaptation strategies (NASs) and plans (NAPs).

By 15 March 2021, and every two years thereafter, Member States report to the Commission information on their national adaptation actions. The adaptation information submitted by Ireland under the EU Governance Regulation in March this year has been published on Climate-ADAPT.

A selection of the reporting is presented for each country along with a link to the public submission of the reporting, where all information and additional files submitted are available. To provide a consistent overview of the reporting, information is structured in the same way on each country page. 
  • Summary: an overview of key items, their status and links;
  • Assessment: climate modelling, projections, scenarios, methods and tools, observed and future impacts and key sectors affected;
  • Legal and policy framework: institutional frameworks and governance on the national and subnational scale along the adaptation policy cycle, integration into sectoral policies, networks and collaboration;
  • Strategies, plans and goals: priorities, challenges, gaps, barriers and overview of national and sub-national strategies, integration in sectoral policies, plans and programs and stakeholder engagement;
  • Monitoring and Evaluation: methodology, state of play of implementation, spending on climate adaptation, progress towards reducing climate-risks, increasing adaptive capacity, meeting adaptation priorities, addressing barriers to adaptation, steps to review climate change impact and vulnerability assessments and national adaptation policy, and good practice on reviewing sub-national adaptation policies;
  • Good practice, cooperation and synergies: synergies of adaptation actions with international frameworks, cooperation in science and policy;
  • Contacts: organisation in charge, relevant websites and social media.
