Adapting to climate change: new toolkit for cities and regions now online  

​ The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) has published the first Green Deal Handbook with a focus on climate adaptation. The Handbook is an interactive toolkit that provides information on financial aid and technical instruments to deploy climate adaptation measures based on different geographical areas and regional specificities. The objective is to equip LRAs with a set of tools and recommendations to better adapt to climate change, minimise vulnerabilities and build resilience to reduce disaster risks as well as loss and damages. A Handbook is available for every EU Member State.

​Designed in a creative and interactive way, the new Handbook on climate adaptation gives local and regional authorities (LRAs) guidance in implementing the Green Deal on a local and regional level. It provides assistance in finding the right measures to deal with the hazards of climate change. It offers guidance regarding case studies, financial aid and technical assistance in the fields of climate adaptation. While this first edition focuses on adapting to global warming, upcoming handbooks will be focusing on the renovation wave and biodiversity.

The climate adaptation 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).
