Projekti käigus töötatakse välja meetmed kohandumiseks kliimamuutustega kohalikul ja piirkondlikul tasandil
Chances of the climate change phenomenon will be identified for the target areas. Through regionalized climate change information, impact and vulnerability assessments, and tested integrative planning approaches in target areas an easy to use toolkit (with use of supporting decisions as "pathfinder") will be elaborated, thus, -enabling BSR municipalities, regions and other actors to deal with the climate change issue in a cooperative, integrative and sustainable way. -enhancing the competitiveness of BSR municipalities and regions -fostering the BSR identity. The methodological approach of the project includes integrative urban-rural cooperation, transnational problem solving, applying and testing of existing and newly created “tools”, and scientific assistance under the mutual feedback principle. Moreover through dissemination of the mainoutputs e.g. toolkit ("pathfinder") and supporting material to the loc./reg. level in all BSR countries (natl. languages). WORK PACKAGES: WP 1: Project Management and Administration; WP 2: Communication and Information; WP 3: Climate Change Material and Analysis; WP 4: Integrated Solutions and Capitalisation of Climate Change; WP 5: Climate Change BSR local and regional applying ICT Toolkit TARGET AREAS (implem. of activities): Territories of involved PPs (partly assoc. organisations): regions, small and medium sized cities, rural areas in DE, EE, FI, LT, LV, RU and SE. PARTNERS: 25 PPs from 8 countries (DE, EE, FI, LT, LV, PL, RU, SE) directly involved representing loc./reg. authorities, development agencies in respective countries, scientific institutions of excellent reputation. Partnership formation (practical and scientific partners, assoc. organis., further experts) will ensure proper implementation in the target areas and the mutual feedback between practitioners and scientists.
