Key action 1b
Further to a meeting at Hampshire County Council on 12 July 2007, this proposal outlines Acclimatise’s approach to delivering Action 1b of the ESPACE project extension.
ESPACE aims to ensure that adaptation to climate change is recognised and incorporated into spatial planning at all levels. Work on the ESPACE project to date has demonstrated that there are some major obstacles to the delivery of climate change adaptation at the local level. This extension to the ESPACE project aims to further investigate the obstacles. The work will help to improve understanding of the needs for co-ordination and management within the spatial planning system.
Within this context, Action 1b of the ESPACE project extension involves undertaking a transnational review to identify common policies, processes and mechanisms that hinder implementation of local-level adaptation. The extension will involve investigating these issues for the UK and the Netherlands.
