Adriadapt - A Resilience information platform for Adriatic cities and towns

(January 2019 - June 2021)


About the project

The Adriadapt project aims at promoting local and regional resilience by developing the knowledge base required to identify suitable climate adaptation and planning options. In this way, the project will enable local authorities to respond to policy needs related to climate action in urban and coastal zones of the project area. A locally specific approach to the choice of strategies for planning and solutions for increasing climate adaptation and mitigation, further to the use of local languages, will ensure a full coherence of proposed strategies and approaches with the effective needs of the area.

This goal will be realized through  four lines of actions:

  1. Harmonize and improve available climate-related knowledge and prepare it for the use in the decision-making process.
  2. Create a climate information system or a knowledge platform for the Adriatic region containing the best practices, guidance documents, legal frameworks and climate and vulnerability studies, to foster the design of multi-scale adaptation and resilience plans and measures, which will support safe and sustainable socio-ecological systems, linking natural, social and economic dynamics that cross transversally from the inland, coastal and marine areas in the two partner countries.
  3. Test and integrate the knowledge platform with partners from the participating Italian and Croatian pilot cases.
  4. Maintain and disseminate the information contained in the knowledge platform as a region specific repository for climate policy and plans, which provides support and locally relevant information aiming at climate resilience planning.

In addition to its project tasks, PAP/RAC will secure transfer of relevant knowledge to other Mediterranean coastal stakeholders.
