Climate Adaptation Through Co-creation

Extended description

Co-Adapt will develop, test and roll-out approaches to co-creation of nature based and natural process solutions to improve adaptive capacity of the 2Seas region to the water-related effects of climate change. The project will develop more open and transparent governance for adaptive water management by embedding co-creation in policy frameworks, especially spatial and water management strategies - leading to greater awareness and stakeholder-led action to improve climate resilience

Co-Adapt will result in increased capacity to adapt to climate change and a region that is more flood & drought resilient. It will directly decrease risk of flood & drought to 30,000ha through co-created NBS, leading to €5.4M of savings from reduced damages, and €5.8M of savings compared to using traditional hard engineering. It will involve 3000 stakeholders in co-creation leading to changed public attitudes to water & climate risks, with 80% of participants feeling involved and supporting NBS measures.
