Preparing the ground for adaptation

Obtain high-level support

High-level support can be triggered by recommendations from a higher level of governance, the way the EU Adaptation Strategy emphasizes the need for adaptation action at Member State level, or it could be triggered by legal obligations, even coming from a single sector. To ensure long term commitment for adaptation from political decision-makers or senior public management (which goes beyond the legislative period), raising awareness might be necessary at first.
