European Environment Agency publishes report on climate hazards
The European Environment Agency (EEA) has published a report concluding that climate hazards are increasing in frequency and severity across Europe.
The report, which is intended to contribute to climate risk assessment and adaptation planning in Europe, notes that Europeans will need to get used to more days with extreme heat and for more extreme precipitation events, the report states. It also analyses how these hazards can affect ecosystems and economic sectors.
According to the EEA, human-driven climate change is now undeniably responsible for an increase in extreme weather events in Europe. The report provides insight on European-wide climate hazards but also includes available data and analysis on regional data.<
