Increase in the frequency and extent of climatic hazards in Europe: new summary by zones published. In a context where extreme weather events and other climate change hazards are increasing in frequency and intensity across Europe, well-founded information is needed to analyze climate threats and adaptation activities. strategic. The new interactive dossier from the European Atmosphere Company (EEA – BLOG) gives an up-to-date view of the evolution of climate threats across Europe's many regions.

Language setting

EEA Europe's new report on the evolution of environmental risks is an interactive document that presents past and projected changes in one of the most vital environmental risks in Europe and analyzes their effects on the many regions of the continent.

The dossier is particularly useful for policy makers as well as experts thinking about climate hazard assessment and also adaptation preparedness in Europe.
The information may additionally be used by EU participants to report climate-related hazards to European compensation.

The dossier, prepared with the support of the Copernicus Climate Modification Solution (C3S) and other EEA companions, provides access to basic and also detailed information on local climate hazards, also illustrating their possible effects on ecosystems and also the private sectors.

The report takes up the latest thinking from the Intergovernmental Panel on Environmental Adjustment (IPCC) that climate adjustment is undoubtedly responsible for the increase in extreme weather events, but provides more detailed information on Europe.

According to projections, typical temperature levels will continue to rise across Europe and heat peaks will rise even faster. According to the report, Europeans should prepare for more days of extreme heat and even more extreme rainfall.

Southern Europe should be able to handle hotter summers, even more consistent droughts and increased fire risk. In northern Europe, annual precipitation and heavy rain are most likely to increase.

Central Europe is expected to be affected by minor summer rains, but also by more consistent and pronounced weather extremes, including heavy rains, river overflows, drought and fire threats.

According to the projections, the level of sea surface temperature, marine heat waves as well as the level of water acidity will certainly increase in all European local seas.
The increase in water level reveals a speed along all European coasts, except the northern Baltic Sea.

Further details on the many climate-related threats can be found in the European Environmental Information Explorer, the tool for verifying climate data in Europe developed collectively by the EEA and C3S.
The context

The Glasgow Environmental Pact

Agreed at the 26th Seminar of Events (COP26) of the United Nations Structural Convention on Environmental Modification (UNFCCC), emphasizes the urgency of improving environmental adjustment and understanding sharing as well as technologies to boost adaptability, build resilience and lower vulnerability to environmental adjustment.

The document also highlights the importance of the best readily available scientific knowledge for the performance of climate action and also provides, among other things, when it comes to information on hazards, hazards and losses as well as damage related to climate.

The EU climate change adaptation strategy aims to shape a climate resilient Europe by 2050 by requiring much more reliable information on climate adjustment, its effects and the adjustment measures required.

Le Pacte pour l'environnement de Glasgow

In accordance with European environmental regulations, the European Payment regularly reviews the progress made by Participating States in adapting to environmental adjustment, in particular with regard to observed and future climate risks on which States are required to report. realize. every two years.
The EU Civil Protection Scheme requires EU Member States as well as other Participating States to submit routine national hazard assessments for compensation.
