The ClimAdaPT.Local project has the goal of starting in Portugal a continuous process leading to the elaboration of Municipal Strategies for Adaptation to Climate Change (Estratégias Municipais de Adaptação às Alterações Climáticas – EMAAC, in Portuguese) and its integration in municipal planning tools.
In order to achieve this goal, it is intended to capacitate municipal staff persons in climate change adaptation, to raise awareness of local stakeholders, and to develop tools and products which will enable the formulation and implementation of the Municipal Strategies for Climate Change Adaptation in the municipalities participating in the project and, in the future, in all Portuguese municipalities.

The project’s specific goals are:
– To develop 26 Municipal Strategies for Climate Change Adaptation,
– To train 52 municipal technical staff persons in Climate Change Adaptation,
– To create a platform for Municipal Climate Change Adaptation,
– To create a Municipal Network for Climate Change Adaptation.

In order to achieve these goals, 26 municipalities were selected taking into consideration the following criteria:
i) Coverage of the national territory: one municipality per each Intermunicipal Community, Metropolitan Area and Autonomous Region;
ii) Socio-economic diversity, vulnerabilities and opportunities of Climate Change in the several sectors already identified by the National Strategy for Climate Change Adaptation;
iii) Political and institutional engagement to prepare and implement the Municipal Strategies for Climate Change Adaptation.
