Implementing adaptation

Implementation of adaptation actions is usually guided by a dedicated adaptation strategy and an accompanying action plan. Alternatively, a plan for mainstreaming adaptation in the existing relevant policy fields could be developed (see Step 5.3). In either case, the plans are firmly based on the outcomes under steps 1-4.

This step assists local authorities and Covenant of Mayors signatory cities in designing their adaptation strategy and action plan, taking into consideration the linkages with other sectoral policies and the interconnection between mitigation and adaptation efforts.
