The IMPACTIN Countries and Territories Climate Change and Physical Risk Mitigation and Adaptation Rating dataset is our new Data Product available on the DAWEX data marketplace.
Our Climate Change Adaptation and Climate Change Mitigation ratings are based on guidelines from the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Activities framework and the EEA, on both topics. The EEA is the European Environment Agency of the European Union.
Climate Change Mitigation means the reduction or prevention of the emissions linked to human activities, such as, e.g., CO2 and GHG, or fluorinated gases (F-gases), whereas the Climate Change Adaption regards actions to adapt to the impacts of climate change, already happening: flooding, droughts, sea level rise, wild fires, rainfall patterns alteration, etc.
Climate change is already happening […] This leads to many adverse impacts on ecosystems, economic sectors, and human health and well-being. Therefore, actions to adapt to the impacts of climate change are paramount and should be tailored to the specific circumstances in different parts of Europe
