OCEANPLAN project investigates how marine spatial planning (MSP) can both be affected by, and adapt to global climate change. MSP is being developed and implemented worldwide as a way to foster sustainability in ocean management and use

Climate value of urban trees

The EU strategy on adaptation to climate change calls for cities to set city-level targets for emissions reduction, plan and implement urban investments, and develop management strategies on urban resilience to climate change.

HEritage Resilience Against CLimate Events on Site

HERACLES main objective is to design, validate and promote responsive systems/solutions for effective resilience of Cultural Heritage (CH) against climate change effects, considering as a mandatory premise a holistic and multidisciplinary approach through the involvement of different expertise (end-users, industry/SMEs, scientists, conservators/restorators and social experts, decision, and policy makers). This is operationally pursued with the development of a system exploiting an ICT platform able to collect and integrate multisource information in order to effectively provide complete and updated situational awareness and decision support for innovative measurements improving CH resilience, including new solutions for maintenance and conservation

GIS-based Infrastructure Management System for Optimized Response to Extreme Events on Terrestrial Transport Networks

SAFEWAY aims to design, validate and implement holistic methods, strategies, tools and technical interventions to significantly increase the resilience of inland transport infrastructure. SAFEWAY holistic toolset will enable to anticipate and mitigate the effects of extreme events at all stages of the disaster cycle: Preparation: SAFEWAY approach is based on a substantial improvement of prediction, monitoring and decision tools that will contribute to the anticipation, prevention and preparation of critical European transport infrastructures for the damaging impacts of extreme events

Preparation of a strategy of adaptation to climate change with use of city climate mapping and public participation

The main aim of the project is to reduce the negative impact of climate change on the city ecosystem of Warsaw and to use the Warsaw experience to encourage other Polish cities to undertake actions for climate change adaptation. The proposed actions include drawing up an adaptation strategy for Warsaw, which aims to prepare the city authority and citizens for dealing with climate change and implementing adaptation actions

RESilient transport InfraSTructure to extreme events

Extreme weather conditions, climate change, damages to the infrastructure (caused by natural and man-made hazards) and traffic impediments negatively impact the reliability of mobility solutions. Risk analysis, adaptation measures and strategies need to be developed that enable minimizing the impact of both natural and man-made extreme events on seamless transport operation

Solutions for improving Agroecosystem and Crop Efficiency for water and nutrient use

The aim of the SolACE project is to help European agriculture to deal with water and nutrients limitations that will be more frequent in the coming decades due to climate change. SolACE will achieve this objective through the design of novel crop genotypes and innovations in agroecosystem management to improve water and nutrient (i

Green Cities for Climate and Water Resilience, Sustainable Economic Growth, Healthy Citizens and Environments

Making nature part of the urban living environment improves quality of life for all citizens, helps business to prosper, provides innovative and inspiring solutions to major urban challenges (such as flooding, heat stress, drought, poor air quality and unemployment) and helps biodiversity to flourish. GrowGreen aims to create climate and water resilient, healthy and livable cities by investing in nature-based solutions (NBS)

Urban Nature Labs

UNaLab will develop, via co-creation with stakeholders and implementation of "living lab" demonstration areas, a robust evidence base and European framework of innovative, replicable, and locally-attuned nature-based solutions to enhance the climate and water resilience of cities. UNaLab focuses on urban ecological water management, accompanied with greening measures and innovative and inclusive urban design

NATure-based URban innoVATION

NATure-based URban innoVATION is a 4-year project, funded by the European Commission and involving 14 institutions across Europe in the fields of urban development, geography, innovation studies and economics. The project will seek to develop our understanding of what nature-based solutions can achieve in cities, examine how innovation can be fostered in this domain, and contribute to realising the potential of nature-based solutions for responding to urban sustainability challenges by working with communities and stakeholders

Climate challenges on coastal and transitional changing areas - weaving a cross-Adriatic response

The project explores climate risks faced by coastal and transition areas contributing to a better understanding of the impact of climate variability and change on water regimes, salt intrusion, tourism, biodiversity and agro-ecosystems affecting the cooperation area. The main goal is to deliver integrated, ecosystem-based and shared planning options for different problems related to climate change together with adaptation measures for vulnerable areas, to decision makers and coastal communities who may best benefit from it

Adaptation and Watering in Green Urban Areas facing Climatic Heat Waves, Drought and Extreme Storms

The project LIFE AGUA DE PRATA aims to tackle some of the water scarcity challenges faced by the Alentejo region in Portugal by sustainably re-using water from the Graça do Divor wells and springs, which were previously sources for the Roman aqueduct. Using these underground sources will help transform water supply for irrigation and will lead to annual savings of treated surface water of around 120

BEtter Water management for Advancing Resilient communities in Europe

Climate change has an impact on the frequency of flooding across Europe with around 200 catastrophic flood events recorded since 2000. Over the past few decades, overflowing rivers and heavy storms have increased becoming common natural disasters, leading to loss of life and having a high economic cost

Climate action campaign for low-income households

The LIFE DoppelPlus project aims to steer the behaviour of low-income households in Tyrol (Austria), which are particularly vulnerable to the consequences of climate change, towards climate protection, and by doing so to raise living standards and reduce energy bills. Specific project actions include: Providing climate protection starter kits to low income families

Development of sustainable and climate resilient urban storm water management systems for Nordic municipalities

The main objective of the LIFE UrbanStorm project is to increase the climate resilience of Estonian municipalities, especially their ability to manage flash flooding caused by heavy rainfall. The project will facilitate the development and implementation of integrated approaches for climate change adaptation strategies and action plans, at  local, regional and national levels, prioritising, where appropriate, ecosystem-based approaches

The METRO ADAPT project aims to mainstream climate change adaptation strategies and measures in the development of a territorial plan for the Metropolitan City of Milan (CMM) and in the planning and building rules of the 134 CMM municipalities. In the project, nature-based solutions are promoted for tackling climate related risks and to regenerate neglected urban spaces

Coast to Coast Climate Challenge

In response to the changing climate, particularly excessive water and unpredictable weather patterns, the Coast to Coast Climate Challenge project aims to create a climate resilient region with a holistic approach.  A long-term strategy, developed with stakeholders, will lead to the targeted implementation of local climate change adaptation (CCA) plans, coordinated CCA analyses and activities, and the identification and improvement of the resources and adaptive capacities of citizens, municipalities, utilities and companies in the water sector

Integrated planning tool to ensure viability of grasslands

Natural and semi-natural grasslands (NSG) are complex ecosystems that provide a range of ecosystem functions and services, which are essential for maintaining biodiversity and healthy societies in general. Loss of grassland biodiversity leads to the degradation and even total destruction of ecosystem functions and services, which would require enormous financial investments to provide artificially
