Just 20 days left to apply for tailored support on adaptation activities

Cities and regions in Mediterranean and Eastern European countries have until 31 May to apply via the Policy Support Facility. The facility will provide 40 local and regional authorities with tailored support from national and European experts to advance global heating adaptation activities. Support will focus on one priority measure as identified by each city or region selected – whether it be to identify risks and vulnerabilities, to develop local incentives for nature-based solutions or even to perform a feasibility study for a rainwater catchment infrastructure project.

The Policy Support Facility is a new European Commission initiative under the Covenant of Mayors – Europe co-led by Climate Alliance. It aims to assist local and regional authorities in implementing adaptation strategies. Covenant signatories as well as signatories to be coming from Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain are encouraged to apply. A separate call for experts will also be open through 31 May.
