DYNAMIC INFORMATION MANAGEMENT APPROACH FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF CLIMATE RESILIENT ADAPTATION PACKAGES IN EUROPEAN REGIONS
As climate change progresses irrevocably, urgent measures are needed for building resilience and adaptive capacity. In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, effective climate resilient regions cannot be built at expense of productive sectors, or without fair societal consensus.
IMPETUS will develop and validate a coherent multi-scale, multi-level, cross- sectoral climate change adaptation framework to accelerate the transition towards a climate-neutral and sustainable economy.
IMPETUS consortium is made of selected local, regional and national public authorities; R&D organisations; SMEs and large enterprises; and international organisations, to build upon, upscale and demonstrate a wide range of R&D solutions. All in all, 32 project partners from 9 countries will test 15 technical and nature-based solutions in all 7 EU biogeographical regions (Continental, Coastal, Mediterranean, Atlantic, Arctic, Boreal, Mountainous).
The main innovative technical, nature-based, governance, financing and public engagement solutions developed by the project are:
- Creation of a data and intelligence space to help in the development of adaptation and mitigation strategies to climate change.
- Cost-effective and environmentally, economically and socially sustainable actions targeted to support key community systems such as water, agriculture, fisheries, infrastructure and health
- “Low regret” and scalable solutions co-designed and created with policy-makers, businesses and communities to help ensure their success.
