Programme: Climate Change Adaptation

Climate Change Adaptation
Description of programme
"Climate Change Adaptation"
The EU Adaptation Strategy provides some concrete indications of the characteristics of projects sought and of specific project priorities. It states that LIFE funding for adaptation will give priority to projects that address key cross-sectoral, trans-regional and/or cross-border issues. Projects with demonstration and transferability potential will be encouraged, as will be green infrastructure and ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation, and projects aiming to promote innovative adaptation technologies. In addition, the European Union will promote adaptation particularly in the following vulnerable areas:
  • cross-border management of floods, fostering collaborative agreements based on the EU Floods Directive;
  • trans-boundary coastal management, with emphasis on densely populated deltas and coastal cities;
  • mainstreaming adaptation into urban land use planning, building layouts and natural resources management;
  • mountain and island areas, with emphasis on sustainable and resilient agricultural, forestry and tourism sectors;
  • sustainable management of water; combating desertification and forest fires in drought-prone areas;
The Strategy further states that the European Union will support the establishment of vulnerability assessments and adaptation strategies, including those with a cross-border nature.
