The eleven detailed city case studies on financial models for implementing urban adaptation measures that Trinomics and its partners Arcadis and TNO have developed under a recent project for the European Environment Agency (published here) have been integrated in the new European Environment Agency report on ‘Financing urban adaptation to climate change’. This report offers lessons learned from these eleven cities in terms of financing local adaptation action. The report comes at a time when municipalities across Europe increasingly acknowledge the need to adapt to climate change and have begun to adopt various measures. Meeting the investment needs for implementing adaptation measures remains, however, a major challenge.
The report can be found here.
