Strategies to adapt to climate change in Adriatic regions (RESPONSe)


The project aims at empowering local policy-makers to enable climate-smart governance approaches and promote sustainable living in Adriatic marine and coastal areas. RESPONSe provides the tools to foster effective policy-making on climate adaptation at the local level and supports strategic decision-making on how best to address the effects of climate change on the coastal areas of the Adriatic basin. Building on the development of tailored climate services tackling the vulnerabilities of the Adriatic region, RESPONSe promotes the engagement of local policy-makers and helps mainstream adaptation planning into policy frameworks.

The main objectives are to:

  • Promote sustainable living in Adriatic marine and coastal areas
  • Identify the challenges and risks of target areas on the basis of actual climate change trends
  • Provide local authorities with context-based tools to foster the uptake of integrated approaches to mainstream climate change adaptation
  • Develop innovative participatory planning processes that will enable pilot areas to boost their adaptation potential.

Results achieved:

  • Analysis of climatological data to understand climate trends
  • Climate change perception survey among public authorities and citizens
  • Adaptation actions toolkit for Public Authorities: climatemenu.eu
  • Climate change risk and vulnerability assessment (RVA) for each pilot area
  • 17 local events and 1 international conference
