Accents in the Spanish Adaptation Strategy

The Spanish approach can be characterised as a Step-by-Step one, which starts of with a general strategy on adaptation and an immediate transfer towards work programmes and a choice to focus on a limited number of sectors: water resources, the coastal zone and biodiversity. Adaptation is not seen as a separate field of policy, but is integrated in sectoral policies, making these sectors responsible for carrying out the adaptation strategy. Finally, there is a clear emphasis on the role of spatial planning: in the urban design, in the use of bio-architecture in public buildings, in the choice of species in green spaces and on the relation between urban patterns and the use of resources.
