Outputs and Publications
ESPACE has delivered a wide range of outputs that provide both a strategy for how spatial planning can better incorporate adaptation and concrete guidance for planners wanting to deliver adaptation on the ground. Through its successful delivery, ESPACE has influenced the philosophy and practice of spatial planning across Europe.
The ESPACE Project was split into two key phases – the core project which ran from 2003 to 2007 and a one year extension which ran from 2007-2008. The Extension focused on understanding why the delivery of adaptation to climate change at the local level is still difficult, even where appropriate policies are in place. The Extension investigated key barriers to adaptation and finding solutions for the successful implementation of adaptation policies at the local level.
