2.1: Improve the climate change monitoring and planning of adaptation measures tackling specific effects, in the cooperation area




Local, regional, national public authorities and related entities

General public


The project aims at empowering local policy-makers to enable climate-smart governance approaches and promote sustainable living in Adriatic marine and coastal areas. RESPONSe will provide the tools to foster effective policy-making on climate adaptation at local level and support strategic decision-making on how best to address the effects of climate change on the coastal areas of the Adriatic basin. Building on the development of tailored climate services tackling vulnerabilities of the Adriatic region, RESPONSe will promote the engagement of local policy-makers and help mainstreaming adaptation planning into policy frameworks.
