Co-creation and implementation of innovative, participative climate adaptation solutions in densely built areas (SPONGE 2020)

Description:

As a response to increasing risks of urban flooding under the changing climate, the SPONGE 2020 project aims to improve the adaptive capacity of cities and densely built areas in the 2 Seas region, along the Southern North Sea and the channel area, through co-creating and implementing innovative adaptation solutions with local stakeholders. Along with 7 co-creation and implementation pilot actions the project will produce a toolbox, a guidance package and a cross-border action plan to support stakeholder engagement and participative actions in climate change adaptation.
