In line with its long-standing commitment to provide critical insight into Public Safety and Disaster Response (PPDR) since 2009 and following its very recent support to the European Commission (EC)’s «Green Deal » as well as its decision to take action accordingly, Public Safety Communication Europe (PSCE) reacts today to the EC’s « Forging a climate-resilient Europe - the new EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change ».
PSCE fully supports the general ambition of the new EU Strategy on Adaptation to climate change and builds its position mainly in relation to the «forging a climate-resilient union» section – its expertise area – and on these specific points:
- a) Knowledge on climate change and adaptation
- b) Improvement of adaptation strategies and plans
- c) Local, individual and just resilience fostering
- d) Reduction of climate-related risk
