Climate change impacts
A new report analyses the impact of climate change on Europe's water resources
The report reviews the challenges facing Europe to adapt to the impacts of climate change on water resources. Water is a critical sector for people's lives and the economy. Even if emissions of greenhouse gases were stabilised today, increases in temperature and the associated impacts, including those on water availability and flooding, will continue for many decades to come.
It concludes that countries are aware of these impacts and have started to adapt to them but there is still much to do.
