Roll-out of innovative climate change adaptation processes in regional networks from North Rhine-Westphalia for Europe (LIFE Roll-outClimAdapt)

Description:

The main goal of the LIFE Roll-outClimAdapt project is to establish innovative approaches to cope with the effects of climate change at the regional level and to create suitable conditions for adaption processes. It has three overarching objectives: to improve regional resilience, mainstream cross-sectoral adaptation in urban planning and to support regional capacity building.

Four specific project objectives are defined:

  • Improve the quality and accessibility of information in regional vulnerability assessments;
  • Integrate climate change adaptation into municipal and regional planning processes;
  • Raise awareness of climate change adaptation and resilience
  • Support the rollout of the innovative regional climate change adaptation in North Rhine-Westphalia by establishing a certified training course on 'Regional climate adaptation' for private-sector consultants and give consulting support for funding schemes in other regions.

Project activities will be piloted in eight initial regions and districts: seven in the focus area of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, and one in West-Overijssel, Netherlands, to test international transferability.
