Climate risk assessments for every european region
Making regions resilient
The CLIMAAX consortium is launching the first Open Call for regions and communities to select regions and communities that will implement the CLIMAAX methodological framework and the supporting CRA toolbox to carry out their regional and local multi-risk assessments.
We are looking for individual applications from public bodies and non-profit legal entities to design and implement a comprehensive climate multi-risk assessment.
This first Call opens on 8 December 2023 at 9:00 Brussels Time and closes on 8 March 2024 at 17:00 Brussels Time.
We are seeking evidence on principles, guidance, standards, frameworks and reports on regional and local risks assessments, developed and applied in Europe and beyond for different purposes.
We encourage the submission of evidence from diverse sources, such as regional or case studies, policy reports and commissioned assessments that may not be accessible through scientific bibliographic databases.
The evidence can be provided in any language of the European Union!
CLIMAAX is an Horizon Europe funded project whose aim is to develop a customized framework and toolbox for climate risk assessment, assisting communities in evaluating past experiences and empowering them to take action.
CLIMAAX’s Open Call invites public bodies to apply for up to 300,000 EUR funding per project, CRA toolbox access, and methodological guidance. The original deadline, set on the 8th of March 2024, has been extended to the 22nd of March to allow UK entities to apply to the call.
