Us / European Programms / Life Adaptate

Life Adaptate, a European Union programme led by INFO, increases the commitment made by European municipalities to the new Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy by developing local adaptation plans that will be integrated into existing mitigation objectives in several municipalities. In doing so, they give a global perspective to the fight against climate change.The total budget is €1,763,487.00

    • For testing cooperation schemes between municipalities from different countries and the positive impact of citizen participation.
