Today, March 11, 2024, the European Environment Agency (EEA) published the first European Climate Risk Assessment (EUCRA). The analysis shows that Europe faces a range of climate risks, which the EUCRA categorizes into five clusters. A total of 36 climate risks for Europe are listed in the five categories of ecosystems, food, health, infrastructure and economy and finance. Southern Europe in particular is affected by several risks at the same time.

European and national leaders are called upon to take immediate and decisive action to strengthen the resilience of the population.
