Part of the ClimateChangePost is the initiative ‘Europe in a changing climate’. This initiative presents the search for Europe’s vulnerabilities, the impact of the projected climate change and the consequences for all the countries of Europe and for all sectors involved, based on a thorough literature research. The spot on the horizon is the second half of this century. The search shows risks and opportunities, consequences of both climate change and non-sustainable use of land and water resources, and strategies to adapt to the consequences of climate change. 

For each European country the results of this search are presented for all relevant themes. Just click on the map of Europe and then select the theme you're interested in. The text on the screen is the summary of a large number of publications over the last years; the most recent ones are the ones that have been summarized in the articles in the ClimateChangePost.
