Adapting to the impacts of climate change is a complex challenge. Identifying and implementing effective solutions can be facilitated by engaging and mobilising stakeholders and citizens, who often have diverse values, beliefs and perceptions.

MIP4Adapt has developed a “do-it-yourself” (DiY) manual to support regional and local authorities identify which participatory activities, tools and methods can be implemented in each step of the Regional Adaptation Support Tool (RAST) cycle. This will help build a common understanding and ownership of climate adaptation plans and actions, which is key to their succseful delivery.

Check out the latest MIP4Adapt video as Mission Board members and Mission Projects discuss the benefits and challenges of citizen and stakeholder engagement:
