Measures of the Adaptation Action Plan III

The second Progress Report on DAS takes stock of the past five years of climate adaptation and sets priorities for future work. The Adaptation Action Plan III contained in the report describes the concrete measures that the federal government will implement in the years 2020 to 2024 to adapt to climate change. The 180 measures include both current and new measures to reduce climate risks in all fields of action.
