Mayors Adapt - new EU Adaptation Initiative for cities

In the context of the EU Adaptation Strategy, the new EU Adaptation Initiative for cities – Mayors Adapt- is being launched in March 2014 through which local authorities can make a voluntary commitment to adopt local adaptation strategies and awareness-raising activities. It foresees the introduction of climate change adaptation within the framework of the Covenant of Mayors, building upon the success of the previous Commission (DG CLIMA)’s pilot project, EU Cities Adapt, and linking with the existing EEA online platform, Climate-Adapt. It builds further on the succeses of these, but removes previous thresholds and barriers for local authorities to get engaged (more flexibility within the requirements etc).
