Mayors Adapt twinning programme

A programme to facilitate exchange and mentoring in adaptation between European cities has been launched. Mayors Adapt, a Europe-wide framework for local authority action on adaptation, is inviting European cities to participate in a one-year twinning programme to connect 10 cities that are starting their adaptation work to 10 mentor municipalities that have already developed successful adaption strategies. Learning and mentor cities will be matched one-to-one with regards to climate and geographic features, socio-economic and institutional context, and adaptation knowledge. Applications must be made by 3 August 2015.
