Vulnerability to the impacts of climate change in Norway

Although Norway has considerable adaptive capacity, climate change will have high costs, both human and material, if climate change considerations are not taken in planning and decision making.

That's the conclusion of the report on vulnerability to the impacts of climate change in Norway, submitted by an independent expert committee to the government in November last year.

The committee was mandated to identify the impacts of and vulnerabilities towards climate change on Norways natural environment and society. The committee composed by 17 members from relevant sectors and actors, worked for two years involving a broad range of stakeholders.

The report has now been translated into English. Although adaptation is highly context specific, the report may provide useful insights on how climate vulnerability assessments may be conducted.
