About the Handbook
This Handbook is a component of the Committee of the Regions' 'Green Deal Going Local' campaign that aims at supporting the implementation of the Green Deal at the local and regional levels.
As there is no 'one-size-fits all recipe' for a local and regional implementation of the Green Deal, this Handbook provides a step-by-step guidance and is adapted to each local context (from urban to rural, mountain and coastal areas, among others).
In a creative and interactive way, it provides information on targeted financial and technical instruments based on geographical and institutional assets and vulnerabilities. It also provides best practices that illustrate how the adaptation objectives of the EU Green Deal can be implemented by local and regional policymakers.
