City Twinning Mayors Adapt
Mayors Adapt is het burgemeestersconvenant voor de aanpassing aan de klimaatverandering
Mayors Adapt is offering cities across Europe the opportunity to take part in peer-to-peer exchanges that aim to increase municipalities’ capacity and knowledge to adapt to climate change. The twinning visits connect cities that are starting their adaptation work to mentor municipalities that have already developed successful strategies to make their territories more resilient. The learning municipality travels to the mentor to understand how the latter tackled the climate hazards. The first online call for participants in the Mayors Adapt city twinning programme was launched in June 2015.
The 2016 city twinning programme is open to:• All towns and cities that have already signed up to the Mayors Adapt initiative or to the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy.• All towns and cities that have not signed up to any of these two initiatives, provided that they commit to have the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy political commitment adopted by their Municipal Council before their twinning visits starts.• Towns and cities that have already applied to the 2015 programme but have not been selected can apply again and follow a fast-track application procedure.
