Last September, the EU launched a Mission to foster Europe’s resilience to climate change at individual, city and regional level, in both the public and private sector. The Mission Adaptation to Climate Change will help prepare for unavoidable climate impacts and accelerate Europe’s transformation into a climate-resilient continent.
Rooted in research and innovation, the mission has set concrete objectives for a common effort and will deliver tangible solutions for Europeans. The aim is to support at least 150 European regions and communities to move towards climate resilience by 2030. To achieve this, we will help regions better understand, prepare for and manage their climate risks and opportunities, support innovative climate resilience solutions and help them source additional investments.
On 23 November at 14:30 Clara de la Torre, Mission Manager, will be joined by John Bell (Deputy Mission Manager) and Dirk Beckers (Director of the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency CINEA) to present the concept and implementation mechanisms of the Mission, and explain how the regions can engage in the process. This will be followed by a Questions and Answers session via SLI.DO. Register to the event
