A wide range of EU-funded projects have completed or are undertaking research and developing innovative approaches and options for climate adaptation and associated guidance, tools, data, and case studies to help regional and local authorities deliver the EU Mission on Adaption to Climate Change. Projects directly funded by Mission on Adaptation are managed by the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA). Those include:

Project name




The Regilience project aims to identify and upscale the most promising climate change resilience solutions and will support their replication in 10 vulnerable regions in Europe. It will communicate about them through channels such as events and training; provide tools and guidance; and inspire policymakers, organisations, and individuals to become part of the change.



TransformAr aims to upscale and accelerate transformational adaptation to reduce climate-related risk. It addresses water-related risks and impacts of climate change through six demonstrator regions and communities that will test solutions.



IMPETUS aims to develop and validate a coherent, multi-scale, multi-level, cross-sectoral climate change adaptation framework spanning all 7 EU biogeographical regions. It will build a robust stakeholder community with reliable data and assessment methods to support decision and policymaking, empowering communities to take action on climate change adaptation. It will also implement and validate specific measures to adapt to climate change.



ARSINOE develops actionable solutions and fosters an innovation ecosystem to further climate resilience and enable adaptation to climate change across Europe. It connects innovators and end-users in different European regions to create novel innovation packages, business models, and implementation concepts that promote sustainability and growth through European cross fertilisation. It develops and tests demonstrators for applicability, reproducibility, potential, and effectiveness in nine diverse European regions.



The CLIMAAX project aims to accelerate the design and implementation of risk management plans for climate adaptation and emergency response across Europe. It will provide substantial financial, analytical and practical support to regions and communities to develop and improve their climate risk assessments through a number of activities including a standardised climate risk assessment framework, a toolbox with data, models and utilities linking global open data archives with local data and procedures, five European pilots, financial support to execute a context-specific climate risk assessment, online guidance on climate risk assessment and a proposal to upscale results.



The Regions4Climate project aims to collaboratively develop and demonstrate a socially-just transition to climate resilience. The project will create and implement innovations combining sociocultural, technological, digital, business, governance, and environmental solutions to reduce the vulnerability of European regions to the impacts of climate change. It will develop a comprehensive Adaptation Framework including a Regional Climate Resilience Dashboard for each partner region, and will design, deploy and scale up solutions through a twinning approach, including 12 demonstration cases across Europe.


Pathways2Resilience / PEERS

P2R takes an innovative, systemic approach to regional climate resilience. It will empower at least 100 regions and communities to co-design visions of a climate resilient future and transformative, locally led pathways and innovation agendas to ensure long-term impact through political commitment. The P2R consortium brings the combined strength of building specialists and monitoring and innovation impact partners



The RESIST project will test adaptation solutions to five key climate challenges: floods, droughts, heatwaves, wildfires, and soil erosion, in four demonstrator regions and eight twinning regions across Europe. RESIST involves stakeholder collaboration in designing and testing more than one hundred new and innovative solutions – adaptation products, regulations, policies and methods. RESIST will also develop 12 Graphical Digital Twins through immersive technologies, to support decision-making.
