REGILIENCE aims to foster the adoption and wide dissemination of regional climate resilience pathways, following a demand-driven approach and bearing in mind the expertise and knowledge acquired, as well as the solutions available from the three linked Innovation Packages projects (ARSINOE, IMPETUS, TransformAr) and other sources. The project puts a special focus on regions. It will support the implementation of climate-resilient pathways in 7 of the 50 most vulnerable regions within the EU. Supporting tools will provide extra benefits for all regions, for example, an overview of European and national funding opportunities designed according to the needs of regions has been created.
In terms of global support, REGILIENCE will also provide dissemination of the solutions and approaches within networks, regional authorities, and key stakeholders, including civil society organisations and citizens. Overall, we plan for almost 700 specific activities with an estimated audience of 100,000 individuals, including 8 large network events, 52 workshops/webinars, 30 twinning, 300 helpdesks, 10 testing of Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), and 40 media activities, amongst others. These activities aim to share experiences, learn from failure, provide guidance, and disseminate knowledge and tools which will be developed by REGILIENCE.
Some activities will be open to a wider public, to know more you can consult the page dedicated to REGILIENCE capacity-building activities by clicking on the tab at the top of this page or by clicking here.
REGILIENCE kicked off on the 1st of November 2021 (read the press release here). Since then, we took part in various EU Mission Adaptation webinars and workshops, gave feedback on a stakeholder consultation, coordinate with Innovation Actions projects, developed tools and select the focus regions. We also participated in a variety of events such as the European Urban Resilience Forum, the EU week of Regions and Cities, and the European Research and Innovation Days among others. Now that the focus regions have been selected all dedicated activities. Some activities will be open to a wider public, to know more you can consult the page dedicated to REGILIENCE capacity-building activities.
The project will be implemented over 48 months led by a solid consortium of 9 partners, led by the Institute for European Energy and Climate Policy (IEECP) and Fresh thoughts Consulting (FT) with the engagement of networks with the European Federation of Agencies and Regions for Energy and Environment (FEDARENE), ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability – European Secretariat (ICLEI Europe), Resilient Cities Network (R-CITIES), F6S Network Limited (F6S) and knowledge holders from science and practice with Associação para a Investigação e Desenvolvimento de Ciências (FC.ID), adelphi, and North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency (REGEA).
