The goal of the AELCLIC project (Adaptation of European Landscapes to Climate Change) is to define and test models to create networks of regional/local stakeholders with the social, financial, administrative, and technical capacity to co-define a plan to adapt the landscape to climate change.

This plan is intended to be an integrated, systemic solution (i.e. non-sectoral) and an informational document to support territorial and sector planning, as well as a reference for public or private initiatives in matters of adapting to and mitigating climate change. It includes policies, strategies, pilot actions, and regional/local initiatives aimed at promoting adaptation to climate change and is defined in a process based on the joint involvement of various local and regional interest holders.

AELCLIC has breathed life into different regional/local stakeholder networks, constituting a set of European pilot landscapes selected strategically in order to cover a range of climate, socioeconomic, cultural, and biogeographical strata in Europe, and to produce highly transferrable, scalable models.

On the local scale for the pilot landscape of Bologna, the project has entailed a diagnosis of the impacts of climate change on the local economy and the life, environment, cultural heritage, and well-being of inhabitants. The diagnosis is based on all interest holders identifying the impacts together, relying on existing studies and reports on the national and regional/local levels; and a co-defined document containing the issues and main content in a future plan for adaptation to climate change of the landscape of the area.

Project Leader: Juanjo Galan (Aalto University, Finland)
Coordinator for implementation in the pilot area of south-eastern Europe: University of Bologna
Additional partners in the pilot area of Bologna: City of Bologna, Fondazione per l’Innovazione Urbana.
