EuroVértice has attended the LIFE ADAPTATE presentation, a project approved in the last LIFE Programme call of European Union for a ‘Climate Change Adaptation’.
The main objective of LIFE ADAPTATE is to improve policies and legislation associated to mitigation and adaptation of Climate Change in the European Union, especially to design the process and implementation of local adaptation policies together with the design of specific adaptations in each municipality, taking into account the challenges presented by each one.
This project, leaded by the Instituto de Fomento de la Región de Murcia (INFO) with EuroVértice as a partner, will implement Sustainable Energy Climate Action Plans (SECAPs) in 6 municipalities from 3 countries. Some measures developed in these plans will be implemented, its application will be monitored and the methodology, tools and results will be transfered all over Europe.
LIFE ADAPTATE will apply an innovative methodology to develop SECAPs in six municipalities in Spain, Latvia and Portugal. Three of these plans will be carried out in the municipalities Águilas, Lorca and Cartagena which are partners at national level together with EuroVértice, the Region of Murcia (OISMA) and INFO (as project leader).
EuroVértice will mainly work to support the implementation of SECAPs with an innovative participatory methodology and the performing of key communication actions. EuroVértice will also support the different partners in the management and administration of the project.
The total project budget is 3.214.997 Euros and the European Union will contribute with 1.763.487 Euros.
