LIFE IP CLIMAZ is the second integrated project to be approved in the Azores. The Climate change is a big problem in Portugal’s nine Azores islands. This Integrated Project will help local authority, Regional Secretariat for Climate Change, implement an existing regional climate change adaptation programme on the Azores islands.
The team will encourage local communities to get involved in developing roadmaps for adapting to climate change. It will also promote its adaptation and mitigation measures into other policy areas, like energy, forestry and tourism, to increase climate resilience. Demonstration cases will help with the move towards carbon-neutral mobility. The team will also work with public authorities from the EU’s outermost regions to find solutions to climate adaptation issues.
This project will be in progress between 2021-2027, with a total budget of 19,92M€ and a contribution of European Commision of 11,95M€ and includes complementary actions with LIFE IP AZORES NATURA project.
