COcreation of strategic action for climate change adaptation of territories and local economies

Life eCOadapt50 is a European project on adaptation to climate change, led by the Àrea d'Acció Climàtica i Transició Energètica of the Diputació de Barcelona and involving 24 public and private stakeholders. The project aims to facilitate the co-creation of strategic actions to adapt local areas and economies to climate change and will be implemented in 19 different territories across Catalonia.

By involving the social and economic stakeholders of the different territories, as well as the local administrations, and with a budget of around 19 million euros, Life eCOadapt50 plans to carry out at least 76 actions between 2023 and 2030 in four economic activities that are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change: agriculture/livestock, forestry, fishing and tourism. The initiative will be implemented in 19 different areas of Catalonia, covering around 60% of the region's territory (around 19,400 km2) and involving more than 10% of the population (over 900,000 inhabitants).
