Climate Resilient Communities of Central Europe
Resilience to climate change can only be achieved when you look at all parts of the puzzle. Cross-sectoral approaches are needed but silo-thinking is still hard to overcome in central Europe. The MISSION CE CLIMATE project helps regions to better coordinate their responses to climate change. The partners activate citizens in pilot regions to contribute to newly introduced community climate missions and develop a climate resilience strategy 2030 including locally adapted action plans.

Climate action to limit global warming to 1.5 °C is proving challenging and off track from the progress required to meet our climate targets. Global GHG emissions are higher today than in 2015 when the Paris Agreement was adopted. Even when fully implemented, current national climate commitments are estimated to lead to roughly 2,4 °C to 2,8 °C global temperature increase by the end of the century. Hence, societies and economies in all regions need to prepare for and adapt to the arising impacts of climate change. We need to streamline our resilience-building and adaptation capacities to cope with the impending changes and be able to transform unsustainable systems.
Adaptation responses to climate change are still too fragmented, incremental, sector-specific, and unequally distributed across global regions, with increasing occurrences of maladaptation (also acknowledged in the IPCC AR6). This means our resilience to changing climate and related consequences is still relatively low and needs urgent attention.
MISSION CE CLIMATE aims to overcome the disjointed, sectoral climate change responses, by introducing a cross-sectoral collaboration approach that supports communities in Central Europe to build stronger adaptation and resilience capacities to climate change.
We will experiment and explore potential solutions in the following areas: Establishment of climate resilience systems in partner communities (Community Climate Missions) supported by a joint 2030 Climate Resilience Strategy (definition of actions, business models, financing mechanisms) and locally tailored action plans (project portfolio approach); Enhancing community capacity to adapt to climate change with new skills and tools; Citizens activation - contributing to community climate resilience through increased awareness and capacity (tools, etc.); Solutions developed through pilot projects that respond to community adaptation challenges.
Central European Project Consortium Takes Bold Steps Towards Climate-Resilient Communities
In the inaugural meeting of the MISSION CE CLIMATE project, representatives from across Central Europe came together to discuss and strategize their efforts to build climate-resilient communities. The event showcased a commitment to collaborative action and innovation in the battle against the growing impacts of a changing climate.
