EU-Level Technical Guidance on Adapting Buildings to Climate Change

The publication collects and synthesises existing methods, specifications, best practices and guidance for climate-resilient buildings into a document that can provide practical advice for professionals.

In particular, the first four chapters of the guidance presented here provide:

  • an overview of existing EU-level policies and standards relating to adaptation in buildings,
  • a summary of the current state of structural design building standards at a European and national level, relating to climate resilience in buildings,
  • an overview of the main elements of climate vulnerability and risk assessment for buildings
  • the main building blocks of existing approaches used to rate the resilience of buildings.

A separate report, the Best practice guidance on adapting buildings to climate change, guides how to enhance the resilience of buildings, including by presenting practical solutions and case studies.
