Societies worldwide have become more resilient to climate disasters but climate change is likely to result in an unprecedented rise in climate extremes, which will challenge the climate resilience and adaptive capacity of our societies.

A recent JRC study shows that over the last four decades, societies around the world have increased their capacity to cope with climate disasters.

The findings indicate that adaptation represents an opportunity to make our societies more resilient and minimize future impacts of climate change in Europe.
