Therefore, in the past few years EUSDR PA5 contributed to the elaboration of the ICPDR Climate Change Adaptation Strategy Update 2018, supported project elaboration and implementation in the field of drought management and climate change related spatial planning, disseminate scientific results to anticipate regional and local impacts of climate change through research.

 

Flood risk management is also a significant target of the priority area.
