REACHOUT – Tools for Urban Climate Resilience

We are starting the realisation of a new project funded by the Horizon 2020 program, that aims to create local policies supporting European cities and municipalities in adapting to climate change and mitigating its effects.

The project assumes to create a new catalogue of tools tailored to the local needs of individual regions, using the experience and solutions implemented under the Dutch National Spatial Adaptation Program.

The consortium, whose leaders are the Deltares foundation and Climate Adaptation Services from the Netherlands, consists of several scientific institutions, expert organizations, including the Sendzimir Foundation, entities from the private sector, and seven agglomerations, among others, the city of Gdynia.

Analysis, ambition, action

The methodology used to create the implementation tools is the Triple-A approach: analysis, ambition, action. The project will use existing resources like databases or platforms created as part of the previous Horizon2020 activities, the Copernicus Program, GEOSS, or JRC.

Instruments prepared under ROUCHOUT will support local authorities, engaging private companies and citizens to accelerate and increase the scope of implementation of urban adaptation practices. The project will last until the end of 2024.
