Introduction to the Project

The Pathways2Resilence project will empower at least 100 regions and communities across Europe to co-design pathways and innovation agendas to become climate resilient by 2030.  The five year EU funded project, coordinated by EIT Climate KIC and with 14 partners, will contribute to the implementation of the Mission on Adaptation to Climate Change, proposing a systemic innovation and capability-driven approach to strengthening climate resilience more efficiently across regions, communities, and their ecosystems.

Project Objectives

The Pathways2Resilience project will allocate €21M across 100 regions and communities via two open call cycles to support the development of their resilience pathways and innovation agendas. The project will develop a Regional Resilience Journey framework and increase knowledge on adaptation options across different innovation areas, with the aim to equip regions and communities to develop climate resilience pathways and connected innovation agendas that are tailor-made to local challenges and needs. To achieve this, the initiative will foster cross-regional learning, collaboration, mentoring and capacity building. Locally-led Innovation Practice Groups engaging regions, local practitioners and citizens groups and a climate finance lab will contribute to increase knowledge on existing innovative adaptation solutions and promote access to adaptation finance.

ERRIN's Role

ERRIN is leading the work on mobilising regions and communities for the activities of the Pathways2Resilience project, notably the two calls for proposals that will be launched and managed by the project. Additionally, ERRIN will foster multi-level governance by creating links with national level adaptation initiatives and support structures linked to the Adaptation Mission, while also supporting stakeholder engagement on the local level. ERRIN will support the project's outreach and communication activities, especially towards EU level networks, institutions and initiatives.
