Evolving Regions – Social innovation for targeted investments in regional climate action
Evolving Regions (former LIRCA, www.evolvingregions.com) is an EU LIFE-funded large-scale project on regional climate adaptation and a flagship for urban land adaptation in North-Rhine Westphalia (Germany). With the Evolving Roadmapping approach, the project provides a framework for a complete adaptation chain. By going through this process, the participating regions are well prepared for financial investments on an evidence-based and stakeholder-integrated manner. The presentation will introduce the path towards a climate resilient region, the financial scaling instruments under development and the first realization in one region.
