Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


Despite the global signals, and European and national
efforts to unlock climate finance, meeting the costs
of adaptation measures for climate change is a
major challenge for relevant authorities and private
stakeholders. However, municipalities across Europe
— cities, towns and smaller districts — have found
various innovative ways to overcome the challenge of
financing their adaptation measures. The 11 city case
studies presented in this publication, and the lessons
they provide, can inspire other cities and smaller
municipalities to reproduce these measures.
