The Commission on Climate and Vulnerability

Summary

Final report from the Swedish Commission on Climate and Vulnerability.

Sweden will be greatly affected by climate change. Adaptation to climate change should start now. This is the conclusion drawn by the Commission on Climate and Vulnerability in its final report, which makes recommendations including increased responsibility for
municipalities and county administrative boards and government support for large-scale high-cost initiatives.

The Commission on Climate and Vulnerability was appointed by the Swedish Government in June 2005 to assess regional and local impacts of global climate change on the Swedish society including costs.
