What is MIP4Adapt?
The Mission Implementation Platform (MIP4Adapt) supports European regional and local authorities to prepare and plan their adaptation pathways to climate resilience. For Charter Signatories, MIP4Adapt is facilitating a Community of Practice and delivering technical assistance to enable regions and local authorities to:
Use their existing climate vulnerability and risk assessments to develop climate adaptation plans and fund and implement climate adaptation solutions
Identify appropriate climate adaptation demonstration projects and identify and access financial support for their implementation
Stimulate engagement and mobilisation of citizens and stakeholders in inclusive approaches to climate adaptation.
What does MIP4Adapt do?
MIP4Adapt is focused on supporting European regions and local authorities in their efforts to build resilience against the impacts of climate change by:
Facilitating a Community of Practice to share knowledge, experiences, and good practices, and to promote coordination and collaboration amongst its members. These include regional and local authorities that are Charter Signatories, Friends of the Mission, Mission Projects and other relevant EU-funded projects, and national authorities (including National Contact Points). Find out more about the Community of Practice.
Facilitating the alignment of relevant EU-funded projects with the work of MIP4Adapt, identifying synergies and complementarities that help to ensure the coherence of support to regional and local authorities regarding climate adaptation planning.
Presenting on Climate-ADAPT, in collaboration with the EEA, guidance, tools, data and relevant projects, which all regional or local authorities can draw upon in preparing and planning for climate resilience.
Providing tailored technical assistance to regional and local authorities that are Charter Signatories to help them to:
Use their climate vulnerability and risk assessments to develop adaptation plans and to fund and implement climate adaptation solutions
Identify demonstration projects on climate adaptation and access funding and financing for their implementation
Engage and mobilise citizens and stakeholders.
Providing a helpdesk function for regional and local authorities that are Charter Signatories who have queries about the MIP4Adapt’s activities or specifically about their climate adaptation planning.
Communicating about the Mission to regions, local authorities, communities, academic institutions, and companies, encouraging their active support and disseminating details of relevant news, events and training courses that are open to everyone.
Organising the annual Mission Forum, an annual flagship event with a wide range of relevant actors to take stock of the Mission’s progress and to exchange views on its direction.
Monitoring, reporting on and evaluating the progress of the Mission, participating regions, local authorities and communities, and the Mission Projects.
