 Aggregate potential impact of climate change, 2009Key messages

    • Climate change will impact European regions differently depending on their regional exposure and sensitivity to climate change.
    • The higher the potential negative impacts, the more important adaptation is in order to avoid negative consequences on the economy, population, physical assets, cultural heritage and the environment.
    • Many mountainous and coastal areas are highly impacted, for reasons such as coastal storm surges, economic dependency on winter and/or summer tourism.
    • Central, eastern and northern European regions face virtually no negative impacts or are even witnessing benefits of climate change offering new economic opportunities.
