SPA 2020

SPA 2020 — a strategic adaptation plan for sectors and areas sensitive to climate changes by 2020, with an outlook by 2030, aimed at ensuring sustainable development and effective operation of the economy and society in changing climate conditions by means of legislative, organisational, informative or scientific activities. This is the first document in Poland of that type, dedicated directly to the adaptation to the ongoing climate changes.

The major objective of SPA 2020 is to ensure sustainable development and effective operation of the economy and society in changing climate conditions.  The document presents the priority adaptation directives which should be initiated by 2020 in the areas most sensitive to climate changes, i.e. water management, agriculture, forestry, biological diversity, health, energy engineering, construction and spatial planning, urban areas, transport, mountain regions and coastal regions.
