A world in transition

Countries are faced with climate change and a need to adapt to a world in transition. Under the Paris Agreement they also have the duty to comply with international climate target plans and reporting systems. It is a known fact that the cost of measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions is enormous. In addition, we are already witnessing the impact of climatic changes: extreme rainfall, deadly flooding, persistent droughts, urban heat island effects or enlarged weather variability. These are all phenomena that urge climate adaptation

VITO has been a trusted partner in climate policy and international climate negotiations. We have supported governments and international organizations in climate action for the past 25 years.
