Project

LIFE Master-Adapt : MAinSTreaming Experiences at Regional and local level for adaptation to climate change

Description:

The project aims to identify and test innovative tools of multilevel governance to support regions and local authorities in defining and developing adaptation strategies and policies. The project will develop an operative and scalable methodology to optimize and make effective the targeting and integration of sectoral regional policies with respect to the climate change adaptation.

In order to be effective, regional policies need to be developed at the local level, combining and integrating top-down and bottom-up approaches. The project also will address the needs of newly instituted local context, such as the metropolitan cities or the municipal aggregation, by ensuring a common methodology for adaptation mainstreaming. New models of governance will be defined and tested which could be able to integrate regional and local adaptation policies and measures.
