The purposeful formation of land use significantly contributes to the moderation of the adverse impact of climate change. Since spatial planning plays a fundamental role in the formation of land use, therefore it is essential to integrate climate adaptation goals into the planning process (Biesbroek, G.R. et al., 2009). Spatial plans primarily assist the achievement of adaptation purposes by the delimitation and protection (primarily against urban sprawl) of areas (as zones, such as ecological corridors) which are important in adaptation and risk prevention. In Hungary at present the spatial planning system already contribute to the above mentioned objectives, but there are lots of unexploited capacities (e.g. new zones should be introduced such as areas of non-structural flood measures or elements of green infrastructure).
