ClimAdaPT.Local project is aligned with the main aims of the European Strategy for Adaptation to CC and of the National Strategy for Adaptation to CC (ENAAC) and intends to demonstrate that the EEA Grants can effectively promote adaptation at local level in Portugal.
The project will meet the call objectives in five complementary ways:
A transdisciplinary and highly recognized team will elaborate the Municipal Adaptation Strategies (port. EMAAC), while raising awareness of local stakeholders and provide training of municipal technicians regarding Climate Change Adaptation issues, and promote Adaptation mainstreaming into Land Management tools/policy. This project will also develop products that will facilitate EMAAC elaboration and implementation by the pilot-Municipalities involved in this project and, in the future, by all other Portuguese Municipalities.
ClimAdaPT.Local is organized in the following workpackages:
