ESPON Climate

Climate Change and Territorial Effects on Regions and Local Economies in Europe

The European planning and observation network is set up to support policy development and to build a European scientific community in the field of territorial development. In this context climate change play increasingly an important role. The project goes beyond problem descriptions, but addresses potential implications that climate change can have on territorial development. By analysing different European regions, its vulnerability, and adaptation options in more detail, e.g. for North-Rhine Westphalia in Germany, the European Alps, the Mediterranean coastal region in Spain, or the Tizia river catchment in SE Europe the challenges for the regions will be examined (financed by European Union structural funds).
