The LIFE – sub-programme “Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation” launched a first call for projects targeting EU macro/regional strategies. Through the area of intervention Adaptation policy development, and adaptation strategies and plans, projects should help national, regional and local authorities to further develop and improve effective and science-based adaptation policies and strategies by
- supporting cooperation across borders through the EU macro-regional strategies cooperation frameworks and sea-basin and other maritime strategies, Interreg funding programmes, and cooperation and networking opportunities under the Common Agricultural Policy;
- supporting to the national adaptation policy cycle and in particular to the revision of national or regional adaptation strategies and plans;
- fostering the exchange of best practices and solutions to common adaptation challenges among the outermost regions and with their neighbours;
- strengthening the application of key principles of climate-risk management to ensure policy coherence (regulation and funding take into account disaster risk to avoid creating new exposure; reduce existing risk by building up resilience, prevention and preparedness; manage residual risk).
The Life Programme aims to contribute to the transformation of the EU into a climate-neutral and resilient society, by supporting the implementation of the EU’s climate policy as part of the European Green Deal and preparing the EU for the climate challenges in the coming years and decades.
