Welcome to a publishing webinar of the report “Adaptation to climate change in the Baltic Sea and Arctic Regions: Governance and policy tools across countries”. The report includes information about climate adaptation policy and governance in different countries from the Baltic Sea and Arctic regions. The study shows that around the Northern Hemisphere there are many countries that have developed a broad range of well-functioning practices for climate change adaptation. There is no need to re-invent the wheel: by learning from other countries’ experiences, Finland and other countries can adopt faster, more efficient and less expensive adaptation measures.
