100 more regions and local authorities join Mission for Adaptation to Climate Change
The European Commission announced on 29 September 2022 that 100 more regions and local authorities are joining the Charter of the EU Mission for Adaptation to Climate Change. The first signatories joined in June 2022, also declaring their willingness to cooperate, mobilise resources and develop activities to reach their adaptation goals. A further 23 private companies, service centres, research networks and local action groups dedicated to improving climate resilience will endorse the Charter and become Friends of the Mission. The total number of signatories to the Mission Charter now stands at 215 from 24 Member States, with 13 more parties coming from countries associated or potentially associated with Horizon Europe.
The Mission Adaptation to Climate Change pursues the goals of the European Green Deal and the EU Climate Adaptation Strategy. It will receive €370 million of Horizon Europe funding for the period 2021-23 and aims to support at least 150 regions and communities in accelerating their transformation towards climate resilience by 2030. It will help these regions and local authorities to better understand, prepare for and manage climate risks, as well as to develop innovative solutions to build resilience.
