The European Commission is calling for proposals for Development of climate change risk assessments in European regions and communities based on a transparent and harmonised Climate Risk Assessment approach.
- Development and beta testing of the climate risk and vulnerability assessment framework tool
- Using the climate risk assessments framework tool in regions and communities, to conduct climate risks, vulnerabilities and impacts assessments as a basis for development or revision of local emergency and risk management plans
The check will normally be done for the coordinator if the requested grant amount is equal to or greater than EUR 500 000, except for:
- public bodies (entities established as a public body under national law, including local, regional or national authorities) or international organisations; and
- cases where the individual requested grant amount is not more than EUR 60 000 (low value grant).
The project is expected to contribute to all of the following outcomes:
- An operational, consistent and more advanced multi-risk assessment framework tool across scales and levels of governance that can be used by all regions and communities in Europe, so they are better equipped to develop their climate resilience plans (if not available yet) or improve the ones that might be already existing.
- Harmonised multi-hazard/ risk assessments at the regional scale, on which the development or improvement of community-based emergency and risk management plans can be based.
- Enhanced adaptive capacity of European regions and communities, reduced vulnerability to climate change, variability and extremes, and strengthened scientific knowledge on climate risk assessment.
- Needs for further development of standards, implementation support and guidance for standards (e.g. design maps for climatic actions) are clearly formulated.
To be eligible for funding, applicants must be established in one of the eligible countries, i.e.:
- the Member States of the European Union, including their outermost regions;
- the Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) linked to the Member States;
- eligible non-EU countries:
- countries associated to Horizon Europe
- low- and middle-income countries
