The REGILIENCE team has held the first Open Training Session (OTS) of our series of capacity-building events for regional actors working on climate adaptation. This session focused on the EU resilience landscape and explored highly innovative EU initiatives and projects. This OTS aimed to provide guidance to regions on where to get support concerning the current challenges and needs faced by regions.
