Project

BalticClimate Baltic Challenges and Chances for local and regional development generated by Climate Change


Description:

The Baltic Climate project targets mainly small and medium sized cities and rural areas in all Baltic Sea region countries to support their development. The project aims to identify how the climate change phenomenon will also present opportunities and chances and not only obstacles for the development of municipalities and regions when they are accounting for climate change information in their long term strategies and planning. The process of doing so will increase the competitiveness of small and medium sized cities and rural areas and their surrounding regions. Thus the following Main Objectives of BalticClimate can be identified:

* To enable Baltic Sea (BSR) municipalities, regions and local actors to deal with the climate change issue in a cooperative, integrated and sustainable way.
* To make the climate change phenomenon understood as challenge, as well as a chance for local and regional overall and sustainable development.
* To make BSR municipalities and regions more competitive for future challenges to maintain and enhance the common existing BSR identity of the region.
