A network of leading organisations involved in integrating climate change adaptation into regional planning and development has been established across Europe in the new Green and Blue Space Adaptation for Urban Areas and Eco Towns (GRaBS) project.
In a highly competitive bidding process we are delighted that the GRaBS project has won funding from the European Union European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) INTERREG IVC Programme.
From Sweden to Slovakia, Greece to Manchester, Lithuania to Austria, and Sicily to Sutton the 14 project partners, drawn from eight member states, represent a broad spectrum of authorities and climate change challenges, all with varying degrees of strategic policy and experience. By sharing best practice and advancing the knowledge and expertise of partner staff through the project, regional and local municipalities, decisions makers, politicians and communities, will be able to make a more informed and strategic response to climate change adaptation. The GRaBS project commenced in the Autumn 2008 and will run for 3 years.
Throughout the project the partners will be producing newsletters, reports and expert papers.
