ETC technical paper
European Coastal Impacts, Vulnerability
and Adaptation: A review of evidence
Nikki Hodgson European Topic Centre - Air and Climate Change
Background to the review
• Undertaken by European partners of the ETC ACC – AEA, PBL,
• The purpose of the Technical Paper is to review evidence of the
impacts of climate change, adaptation policies, measures and
actions across Europe’s coasts – it seeks to capture key
points/issues/messages and does not aim to be comprehensive
• The review will contribute to EEA’s coastal assessment (2012)
which will support the European Commission ICZM strategy review
• Review categorised by the same marine regions as the 2008
European Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) - which
established European Marine Regions (and sub-regions) on the
basis of geographical and environmental criteria

• Adriatic Sea AND Ionian and Central Mediterranean Sea
(combined regions for ease of reporting)
• Aegean-Levantine Sea
