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.
Building Resilience: Brač Island’s Effort to Tackle Climate-Induced Water Scarcity
As the third-largest island in Croatia, Brač recognises the pressing need to future-proof its infrastructure against the impacts of climate change. In a forward-thinking endeavour driven by the imperative to strengthen community resilience and adapt to the looming challenge of climate-induced water scarcity, Brač will pilot test a transformation ...
Data-Driven Climate Resilience: Piloting strategies for urban futures
The City of Dornbirn and the University of Applied Sciences Vorarlberg will collaborate to test climate change adaptation measures for heat islands through a pilot study where nature-based solutions will be implemented.
MISSION CE CLIMATE’s First Training Event supports Navigating Climate Adaptation in Central Europe
MISSION CE CLIMATE achieves a milestone with the successful completion of its inaugural training event, featuring an expert-led session by Dr. Tjaša Pogačar on climate adaptation, setting the stage for ongoing efforts to build climate-resilient communities in Central Europe.
Green Bus Stops for Greater Resilience in Maribor
There are many urban heat hotspots in the city, of which bus stops are the most critical in terms of micro-locations. The MISSION CE CLIMATE pilot will identify bus stops where nature-based solutions will be implemented. In this way, we will contribute to reducing the heat island effect at ...
Paving the Way for Climate-Resilient Communities in Central Europe: A “Smart City” Pforzheim Initiative
krumedia, the City of Pforzheim and Stadtwerke Pforzheim are working together with students at Pforzheim University to demonstrate the feasibility of a network of low-cost sensors distributed in the city for the collection of climate-relevant data. The students are currently investigating temperature and humidity trends at various locations with ...
Enhancing Urban Resilience in Košice City Through Climate Data Monitoring
In an era marked by rapidly changing climate patterns, urban areas around the world are increasingly recognizing the need to adapt and build resilience. In response to this challenge, The Urban Climate Monitoring Pilot was designed to monitor climate data in the urban area of Košice in order to ...
CLIMATE GOVERNANCE TO FACE CLIMATE CHANGE ON THE ADRIATIC COAST
Thanks to MISSION CE CLIMATE, Lignano Sabbiadoro seizes the opportunity to accelerate the transition to a climate resilient future through effective climate governance actions to address increased challenges linked to climate change.
Innovative Assessment Approach for Building Climate Resilient Communities
In a rapidly changing climate landscape, effective climate vulnerability assessment is pivotal in building resilient communities. The MISSION CE CLIMATE RVA approach represents a valuable step towards this goal, providing a holistic and adaptable approach that aligns with the EU's development commitments. Watch our tutorial to find out more.
Advancing Climate Resilience through Innovative Assessment Approaches
As the world grapples with the escalating impacts of climate change, assessing climate vulnerability has become a critical imperative. Numerous approaches have been developed to gauge communities' and regions' susceptibility to climate-related hazards. Amidst this array of methods, one promising approach that aligns with several climate adaptation frameworks and ...
Building Community Resilience to Climate Change: Why It Matters
The year 2023 is a global record-breaker in climate change impacts. From the warmest summer season by a large margin to a growing number of severe climate weather events spanning the globe. From now on, we are set to start temporarily breaching the 1.5 °C specified in the Paris ...
