Event announcement poster

As observed by the EU Climate Change Service, Summer 2023 marked a season of contrasting extremes in Europe: while some countries were affected by severe heatwaves, devastating wildfires, others experienced important rainstorms and floodings.

From their natural environment to their socio-economic development strongly connected to the sea, coastal regions and islands are at the frontline of the consequences of climate change, experiencing an increasing vulnerability to hazards such as coastal erosion, sea level rise, and degradation of coastal infrastructure. Considering the strong impact of climate change, EU regions and islands have started to develop and to implement climate adaptation and mitigation policies, plans and measures, to ensure the resilience of their infrastructure.

In consideration of the outcomes of the COP 28, and ahead of the future EU mandate, this event organised by the SEArica Intergroup of the European Parliament and hosted by MEP Josianne Cutajar represents a timely opportunity to bring together key policy makers and stakeholders to reflect on the EU support for an effective resilience to secure a sustainable future of coastal and maritime communities.
