REGILIENCE / Focus regions

REGILIENCE project 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 Innovation Packages and other sources.

Focus regions

Implementing climate resilience in vulnerable regions

After conducting a need survey covering the 50 most vulnerable regions in the EU, the 7 following regions have confirmed their participation in the project. Three of them are FEDARENE members.

  • Madeira (Portugal) – FEDARENE member: Madeira Regional Agency for Energy and Environment (AREAM)
  • La Réunion (France) – FEDARENE member: Horizon Réunion
  • Yuzhen tsentralen (Bulgaria) – FEDARENE member: Plovdiv Energy Agency (EAP)
  • Comunitat Valenciana (Spain)
  • Murcia (Spain)
  • Istrian County Area (Croatia)
  • Central Macedonia (Greece)

These regions will be matched with Innovation Package projects and participate in different activities such as citizen surveys, the development, and testing of an indicator set for regional resilience but also capacity-building activities.

Melting glaciers require mitigation and adaptation – Opinion article

Melting glaciers are a critical probelm for many reasons. Their retreat threatens the stability of the water cycle, poses economic challenges to communities who live by them, and endangers species who depend on them. Adaptation measures can soften each of these blows.
