Seven European regions have been invited to join the REGILIENCE team, three of them are FEDARENE members. After a tough selection process among the 50 regions most vulnerable to climate change in the European Union covering a need survey and interviews, seven regions have confirmed their participation in the REGILIENCE project and are now enrolled as focus regions.
These regions will benefit from the offers of the REGILIENCE to prepare the ground and provide support to develop climate resilience pathways. Relevant activities of the three sister projects (ARSINOE, IMPETUR, TransformAr) will be highlighted for the new regional partners. A broad range of activities will be offered such as citizen surveys, capacity-building activities, the development and testing of an indicator set, and many more.
The three FEDARENE members invited to join REGEA and the FEDARENE team are:
