The European Commission will soon launch a new climate change adaptation strategy, anticipated for early 2021. This will set out the pathway for adapting Europe, as well as industry and infrastructure to the impacts of climate change.
EBI responded to the consultation to highlight the impact of climate change on the recreational boating industry and how adaptation measures should be implemented and funding prioritised. The main areas addressed in the response were 1) Climate change impact on recreational boating and nautical tourism, 2) Potential solutions (infrastructure, supporting users) and the 3) Interaction with environmental transformation. Input to EBI’s response was also kindly provided by the ICOMIA Marinas Group and the PIANC Recreational Navigation Commission.
