100 regions and local authorities join the EU Mission for Adaptation to Climate Change
The European Commission has announced that 100 more regions and local authorities are joining the Charter of the EU Mission for Adaptation to Climate Change, following the announcement of the first signatories in June.
The total number of signatories stands now at 215, coming from 24 Member States with 13 more parties coming from countries associated or potentially associated with Horizon Europe, while in June 2022 the signatories and the other parties amounted to 118 (from 18 Member States) and 6, respectively. Moreover, a further 23 private companies, service centres, research networks and local action groups dedicated to improving climate resilience will endorse the Charter.
At the beginning of 2023, the new signatories will benefit from the Mission Implementation Platform, where they can find climate data and methodologies for climate risk assessments and receive tailor-made guidance on effective adaptation measures in order to develop pathways toward climate resilience.<
