About the CLIMAAX project

CLIMAte risk and vulnerability Assessment framework and toolboX (CLIMAAX) is a 4-year Horizon Europe project that will provide financial and practical support to improve regional climate and emergency risk management plans.

The consortium consists of a combination of climate risk assessment and emergency response experts, regional authorities responsible for risk management, regional and national Civil Protection Agencies, and small and medium-sized enterprises.

CLIMAAX will help local and regional authorities and communities gain a deeper understanding of the climate risks they are exposed to, and empower them to take action, assist communities in evaluating their past experience and progress in assessing climate change risks.
