MAinstreaming experiences at regional and local level for adaption to climate change
The LIFE MASTER ADAPT project aims to identify and test innovative tools of multi-level governance, to support regions and local authorities in defining and developing adaptation strategies and policies. In particular, the project aims to build on existing developments in Lombardy to create a scalable methodology to optimise the targeting and integration of regional policies in different sectors with respect to climate change adaptation (CCA).
In order to be effective, regional policies need to be developed at the local level, combining and integrating top-down and bottom-up approaches. The project aims to address the needs of groups of towns or cities that share the same vulnerabilities and whose administrations have a similar capacity to respond to climate change, but which are missing a common methodology for mainstreaming adaptation. The project will define and test new models of governance, which may enable the integration of regional and local adaptation policies and measures.
The LIFE Programme
The LIFE programme is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. The general objective of LIFE is to contribute to sustainable development and to the achievement of the objectives and targets of the Europe 2020 Strategy, the 7th Union Environmental Action Programme and other relevant EU environment and climate strategies and plans.
It foresees two main strands. The ‘Environment’ strand of the new programme covers three priority areas: environment and resource efficiency; nature and biodiversity; and environmental governance and information.
