Innovative, Collective, Adaptive Water Management

The objective of LIFE Local Water Adapt is to demonstrate a unique approach to local water management – collective adaptive water management (CAWM) – as an effective urban adaptation strategy. The approach overcomes existing barriers by creating a public-private partnership of local actors

Adapting Northern cultural heritage to the environmental impacts of climate change and associated natural hazards through community engagement and informed conservation planning

Adapt Northern Heritage is a project supporting communities and local authorities to adapt northern cultural heritage to the environmental impacts of climate change and associated natural hazards through community engagement and informed conservation planning. The project has three principal objectives: Assessment tool and adaptation guidance: develop procedures for risk and vulnerability assessments and sustainable adaptation planning of historic places and make the procedures accessible through online software Demonstration case studies: produce adaptation action plans to demonstrate how the environmental impacts of climate change and associated natural hazards can be integrated into conservation planning Community network: create a network for stakeholders concerned with the conservation of northern cultural heritage in the context of a changing climate to contribute, engage, learn and network Nine historic places from across northern Europe are used  as demonstration sites in Adapt Northern Heritage

Application of Nature-Based Solutions for local adaptation of educational and social buildings to Climate Change

LIFE-myBUILDINGisGREEN aims at increasing the resilience of social and educational buildings by implementing nature-based solutions as prototypes of climate adaptation and improved well-being. More specifically, the project’s goals are to: Improve knowledge on the development, assessment, and monitoring of vulnerability to climate change of buildings by developing and testing a common, ready-to-use method in southern, western, central and northern European regions; Analyze and verify the impact of nature-based solutions as measures to adapt to climate change in three pilot buildings; Promote sustainable ecosystem-based adaptation measures and increase the capacity to apply such knowledge in practice through dissemination and demonstration workshops; Promote the governance of regional authorities, directors and building managers, and the construction sector to integrate nature-based solutions as part of measures to promote sustainable adaptation in buildings; and Contribute to the development and implementation of a common EU policy on adaptation to climate change by transferring best practices and knowledge to target groups and stakeholders

Creating A New Approach to Peatland Ecosystems

Wetlands such as fens and bogs are natural systems with great carbon storage and water retention capacity. They used to be a major part of the landscape in the low lying areas around the North Sea
