Make climate change adaptation a core objective of spatial planning

Create a robust policy framework for integrating climate adaptation into spatial planning to show what should be done and by whom.

  • European level: Adopt a clear policy on climate adaptation through the Green Paper/White Paper process. Make a Commissioner responsible for ensuring climate adaptation is incorporated into all policy frameworks. Make the Court of Auditors responsible for checking compliance with climate adaptation objectives.

  • National level: Develop a National Climate Adaptation Plan showing how the national spatial planning system will ensure adaptation to climate change. Support the plan with a set of strong policies and effective fiscal and legal instruments to deliver adaptive spatial planning and development control at regional and local levels.

  • Regional level: Develop cross-cutting policies on climate adaptation in spatial plans and fully integrate climate adaptation into the development of sectoral policies. Develop an action plan with a co-ordinated list of measures addressing all stakeholders and helping to deliver climate adaptation policies.

  • Local level: Develop cross-cutting policies on climate adaptation in spatial plans and integrate climate adaptation into the development of sectoral policies. Involve communities and the private sector in decisions on how to incorporate climate adaptation into spatial plans.
