REGILIENCE - Resilience Strategies for Regions

2021 - 2025

REGILIENCE aims to foster the adoption and wide dissemination of regional climate resilience pathways, following a demand-driven approach and bearing in mind the expertise and knowledge acquired, as well as the solutions available from Innovation Packages and other sources.

The project will develop a needs survey covering the 50 most vulnerable regions in the EU, which will be shared and matched with Innovation Package projects, 2 citizen surveys and the development of an indicator set for regional resilience, including its testing. It will furthermore review and foster synergies of 30 online platforms to improve their performance and usability for regions and communities.

In terms of support, REGILIENCE will provide wide dissemination of the solutions and approaches within networks, regional authorities and key stakeholders, including civil society organisations and citizens. Overall, the consortium plans for almost 700 specific activities with an estimated audience of 100,000 individuals, including 8 large network events, 52 workshops/webinars, 30 twinning, 300 helpdesk, 10 testing, and 40 media activities, amongst others.

These aim to share experiences, learn from failure, provide guidance and disseminate knowledge and tools which will be developed by REGILIENCE, such as the Resilience Fundamentals Course, a citizen Resilience Scan Tool, information about resilience funding and financing, including recommendations for the inclusion of climate resilience in the national and regional plans for the EU Recovery Package and the Multiannual Finance Framework, on overcoming barriers and obstacles, maladaptation and the running of 10 tests for innovative public-private partnership approaches. Complementary to wide dissemination, the project plans to facilitate the replication of Innovation Packages in 10 additional vulnerable and low-capacity regions.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 101036560.
