The LOCALISED project is set to close the information gap between national-level decarbonization plans and the local needs for planning and implementation of energy transition and climate adaptation. To do so, it will create user-friendly tools allowing local authorities, citizens and businesses to speed up their planning actions and business models towards deep decarbonisation. To successfully carry such an approach, the project pulls together a multidisciplinary consortium including experienced institutions in the science of multi-sectoral energy transition, economic analysis, city adaptation and climate impacts, policy consultants and citizen engagement and communication experts.
PARIS REINFORCE was an EU-funded research and innovation project aimed at effectively supporting the design of climate policies, in light of these requirements; it started in June 2019 and was completed in November 2022. In particular, the project aimed to develop a novel, demand-driven, integrated assessment model-oriented framework for effectively supporting the design and analysis of climate policies in the European Union as well as in other major emitters and selected less emitting countries, in respect to the Paris Agreement and associated challenges. By engaging policymakers and scientists/modellers, PARIS REINFORCE created the open-access and transparent data exchange platform I2AM Paris, in order to support the effective implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), the preparation of future action pledges, the development of 2050 decarbonisation strategies, and the reinforcement of the 2023 Global Stocktake.
REACHOUT is a European Commission funded research and innovation project to advance user-oriented climate services to support the implementation of the Green Deal. Therefore, research partners, climate service providers and city stakeholders are co-developing a coherent set of services for seven city hubs across the EU. **Triple A-Toolkit: analyse, ambitions and actions** These services support cities to analyse hazard, exposure and vulnerability to climate change, formulate ambitions for Climate Resilient Urban Development, and identify, evaluate and select adaptation actions for implementations. This so-called Triple-A toolkit builds upon and utilises existing tools and services. To ensure sustainability beyond the lifetime of the project, it cooperates with existing climate service platforms and develops business models for implementation of the services from the start.
REGILIENCE is committed to supporting the European Green Deal and the EU Mission “Adaptation to Climate Change” by fostering the adoption of regional climate resilience development pathways. The project develops, compiles, shares and promotes tools and scientific knowledge to support European regions in identifying and addressing their climate-related risks. The project works closely with sister projects, such as ARSINOE, IMPETUS and TransformAr to enhance the capacity of 7 focus regions to tackle the unavoidable impacts of climate change.
The overall concept of I-CHANGE is based on the idea that citizens and the civil society have a central role in the definition of environmental protection and climate action and that their direct involvement is essential to drive a true shift and promotion of behavioural changes towards more sustainable patterns. The project addresses the environment and climate challenges from two perspectives: * Empowerment through knowledge acquired through hands-on participation in the monitoring and assessment; * Understanding the role and the impact of individual choices (behaviour, lifestyle and consumption) in the daily life and its consequences on the environment;
