⚠️ This is the first operational version of the handbook, but it is still a work in progress and will be heavily updated during 2024! ⚠️



Climate risk assessments (CRA) combine datasets on hazards, exposure and vulnerability, both under current as well as future climatic and socioeconomic conditions. Here we provide details of different pan-European datasets that can form the basis of CRA, all of which are publicly available under an open-access license. These examples of hazard, exposure, and vulnerability datasets provide an overview of data currently used in CRA or for potential use in CRA.

We are currently assembling overview tables of the most prominent pan-European datasets for CRA which will be made available in these sections once completed.
