Christos Stylianides, EU’s Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management spoke at the 4th European Climate Change Adaptation Conference in Lisbon on 28 May.
The discussion covers the significance of prevention actions to reduce the impact of disasters that are amplified by climate change. In order to address these challenges, the EU has recently taken concrete operational steps via rescEU, a new legislation to strengthen the existing EU Civil Protection Mechanism, and there is also the long term Strategy on Adaption to Climate Change.
This year’s European Climate Change Adaptation Conference focuses for the first time on the synergies between disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
