Key action 1
Review experiences of the ESPACE Project (2003-2007) and identify policy barriers to implementation
Timescale: May 2007 – November 2007
This key action will identify the barriers to implementation of adaptation at the local level. This will help to better understand what is needed in terms of co-ordination and management to achieve adaptation to climate change within the spatial planning context. This action is divided into two parts:
The second part of this action is a transnational review of common policies, processes and mechanisms that hinder the implementation of adaptation to climate change by local implementation agencies. The review will involve identifying the key local implementation agencies, their powers, responsibilities, duties and actions. It will then review what policies, processes and mechanisms are hindering those agencies ability to deliver adaptation to climate change at the local level.
