Mainstreaming local climate change adaptation policymaking

The project will develop, test and implement a methodology for the analysis of vulnerability to climate change and climate policy, where the method can be implemented within the framework applicable to municipalities in Sogn og Fjordane without being dependent on external financial grants to municipalities.  The overall objectives of the project are:

  1. Contribute to integrate the emission and adaptation-oriented climate policy so that this term can be handled as one area of ​​policy, not like today where occasionally it is handled as two completely separate policy areas (not least by state authorities).
  2. Help to establish climate change as a normal policy area for the municipalities in the county, without being dependent on extraordinary external financial grants to run.
