Climate change and risk prevention
With climate change taking place, the regions of Europe will also be increasingly affected. Already today, 7% of the Union's population lives in areas prone to flooding, while around 9% lives in areas where there are more than 120 days a year without rain. It is obvious that climate change has a major impact on citizens' quality of life, as well as on their safety. Life on Earth as we know it today has evolved over the course of millennia, during which time a balance has been achieved. The recent acceleration of climate change can only have devastating consequences for life and for society itself. For this reason, the EU helps the Regions of Europe to find solutions for their own development that are compatible with the preservation of the environment in which they live.
