Bottom up Adaptation Strategies for a Sustainable Europe

Strategies for enhancing policy coherence: mainstreaming adaptation into keysectoral and development policies

This deliverable investigates and provides a comprehensive mapping of the processes and interactions linking climate change adaptation strategies to key-sectoral policies across Europe. Building upon analysis and outcomes from WP 2, findings from case studies (WP 5) and sectoral models assessment (WP 6), where strategies have been evaluated at different scale, the aim of this report is to identify and select measures and development options for enhancing policy coherence and effectiveness, especially in relation to the most relevant financial mechanisms supporting the Cohesion Policy and the Common Agricultural Policy. The aim of the study is to recommend ways and offer guidance to public bodies and managing authorities in Member States on how to mainstream adaptation through specific measures and expenditures eligible under the European sectoral legislation and critical development programs.
