Supporting cities' climate adaptation efforts

  • environment

EUROCITIES has joined the Mayors Adapt initiative on climate adaptation.

As a means of strengthening city-to-city cooperation on climate adaptation, we have joined DG CLIMA’s Mayors Adapt initiative. As part of this new contract, we will organise several climate adaptation workshops in cooperation with our environment forum, and we will coordinate city twinning on climate resilience.

The first workshop will take place during the spring meeting of our environment forum on 25-27 March in Porto. The twinning sessions are designed to allow local authorities to learn more about what their European peers are doing in order to adapt to their worsening climatic conditions. The exchanges are scheduled to start in the autumn, but a call for participation will be disseminated by June.
