Pathways2Resilience is a leading project under the EU Mission on Adaptation to Climate Change that aims to increase the resilience of European regions and communities in the face of climate change. As part of its mission, Pathways2Resilience will allocate a total of 21 million euros across two calls to support a minimum of 100 regions/communities within European Union (EU) Member States or Associated Countries, situated in Europe’s biogeographical regions.
The project has already launched its first call for applicants, where 40 regions and communities will be selected to receive a sub-grant of up to €210 000 to formulate local and regional resilience pathways. In addition to the sub-grants, chosen regions and communities will have the opportunity to engage in the program’s support services and capacity-building activities. These include a peer-led mentoring program, seminars, workshops, and tailored guidance on innovative finance mechanisms.
Applicants from EU Member States or Associated Countries within Europe’s biogeographical regions are eligible to apply. More detailed eligibility criteria here.
The open call eligible activities:
- Activities to develop regional pathways, plans, and innovation portfolios towards climate resilience building on existing assessments of trends and projections of future climate change risks.
- Activities supporting the process of developing the pathways as specified in the scope topic text including relevant stakeholder engagement and capacity building.
- Activities related to communication, dissemination exploitation, and project management activities.
Key selection criteria:
- Most vulnerable regions (high climate risk and low adaptive capacity)
- Diversity (countries, bioregions, climate risk types, scale, etc)
Online information sessions will be organised to present the call in detail and to allow potential applicants to ask questions about the call. The dates for the information sessions are:
