The new Horizon Europe 2020 programme Pathways2Resilience (P2R) has launched a Call for Expressions of Interest, “marking a first step toward multiple open call cycles through which successful applicants will receive up to €300,000 in sub-grants to develop collaborative climate resilience pathways and help fulfil the EU’s Mission on Adaptation to Climate Change.”
A total of €21 million will be awarded across 100 European local and regional governments for “advancing climate change adaptation and resilience”, says the announcement.
With a focus on systemic innovation, says Pathways2Resilience, “the selected 100 regions and communities will be able to expand their portfolio of adaptation activities and enhance local capacity for climate resilience with the input of local stakeholders. P2R will also offer the participants assistance as they examine finance mechanisms. Access to training modules, methods, tools and guidelines will be made available as well.”
