Comparing conducted adaptation to climate change in Poland and in other European countries it can be noted that despite the growing awareness of the negative impact of weather among Polish enterprises and state institutions, there remains a lack of appropriate weather risk analysis, decision support models, and means to assess the effectiveness of measures implemented so far in response to climate change adaptation.
