National Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change
Climate change is expected to have a significant impact in Finland on the natural environment, the economy and society. The best way to minimise the impacts of climate change is to limit and reduce greenhouse gas emissions on the global scale as early as possible. However, current climate scenarios show no significant downturn in the current global warming trend for decades, in spite of efforts to mitigate climate change. This makes it essential to adapt to climate change. The main elements of Finland's National Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change are also included in the National Energy and Climate Strategy, which was submitted to Parliament in 2005.
