Tiberiu Ichim


As countries gain more experience in developing and implementing national climate change adaptation strategies and plans, the need for understanding their progress and effects is also increasing, especially through indicators for monitoring and evaluation of adaptation to climate change at national level. This Technical Paper contributes to the evolving knowledge base in this field and is accompanied by an annex including an Excel database of national adaptation indicator sets from five European countries collected in 2017 (Austria, Finland, Germany and the United Kingdom) and 2018 (Scotland).
