The European Topic Centre on Climate Change impacts, vulnerability and Adaptation (ETC/CCA) is a centre of thematic expertise contracted by the European Environment Agency (EEA) to carry out specific tasks identified in the EEA strategy and specified in the EEA Annual Management Plans in the area of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation across Europe. The ETC/ACC consortium comprises 10 European institutes led by the Italian Euro-Mediterranean Center for Climate Change (CMCC) and including our research group (CCIAM). Since 1 January 2011, the ETC/CCA assists the EEA in its support to EU policy by improving information including: data and indicators on climate change and its impacts across sectors and regions, assessment of climate change vulnerabilities and natural hazard risks to society and ecosystems and current or planned adaptation strategies and actions.
