Workshops in the pilot regions have taken place

In the last weeks of September, the consortium organized the kick-off workshops for the five pilots regions that are part of the CLIMAAX project.

Partners from the CLIMAAX team visited the Latvian Environment, Geological and Meteorological Center (LEGMC) in Latvia, the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), the Ministry of the Interior and the Catalan Civil Protection unit in Barcelona. The Catalunya meeting was joined by pilot partners from Portugal (Setúbal) and Slovakia (Žilina).

There were meetings and field visits with the emergency response units and representatives from the Ministries. In the surroundings of Barcelona, sites were visited where recently impressive flashfloods and wildfires took place.

In the coming months, the pilot partners will collaborate with co-workers from CLIMAAX to get grip on the challenges imposed by climate change on their region and operations. Hereto, local knowledge, experience and needs will be combined with the CLIMAAX methodologies.

All experience that will be gained in the coming months will help to improve the CLIMAAX tools and methodologies for the regions that will be granted the opportunity to run a Third Party Funded project under the CLIMAAX open call.
