How to strengthen Finland’s capacity to adapt to climate change?

As climate change impacts increase, the ability to adapt must be systematically strengthened throughout society. Until recently, adaptation in Finland has advanced most clearly in water management, construction, and forestry sectors, where the long-term development of climatic conditions have traditionally been important. New measures are needed especially as impacts are likely to intensify. There is also a need to prepare for the consequences of impacts that occur outside the national borders. Adaptation should be examined as a way to foster the Green transition and comprehensive security. At the same time, the acceptability and fairness of adaptation measures need to be ensured.
