Climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity, and the window to take action and secure a liveable future is closing fast. The European Commission presented in 2021 its new EU Strategy on adaptation to climate change, setting out how the EU can adapt to the unavoidable climate impacts. Through the Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation (Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe), the EU has already made significant contributions to improve our understanding of the changing climate and provide innovative adaptation solutions. Building on the release of the IPCC Working Group II report "Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability", this brochure puts a spotlight on and celebrates the contribution of EU-funded projects to pushing the boundaries of world-class adaptation science as a key ingredient towards climate resilient development and just transition for all.
