Coast to Coast Climate Challenge (LIFE IP C2C CC)


In response to the changing climate, particularly excessive water and unpredictable weather patterns, the Coast to Coast Climate Challenge project aims to create a climate resilient region with a holistic approach. A long-term strategy, developed with stakeholders, will lead to the targeted implementation of local climate change adaptation (CCA) plans, coordinated CCA analyses and activities, and the identification and improvement of the resources and adaptive capacities of citizens, municipalities, utilities and companies in the water sector. 

C2C CC views CCA plans as a cross-boundary challenge in which coordination, knowledge sharing and capacity building are necessary for improved governance and the development of tools and innovation. It focuses on four themes related to the hydrological cycle: sea and fjords, rivers, groundwater and rainwater. These are supplemented by three cross-cutting themes: governance, tools and innovation. The project is facilitated by the Central Denmark Region and supports the implementation of 21 municipal adaptation plans and 4 risk management plans.
