Regions4 in cooperation with the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) and the LSE Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment is currently developing the “Good Practice Guide on Climate Change Adaptation in a Multi-Level Governance Context.”

In line with the Paris Agreement that recognises that “adaptation is a global challenge faced by all with local, subnational, national, regional and international dimensions, the guide will reveal common challenges for multi-level governance in adaptation, and identify good practices and experiences from regional governments.

In this regard, a survey was developed to explore to what extent adaptation is currently being addressed as a multi-level challenge. The information provided in the survey will be used to develop the Good Practice Guide, which will be presented at the COP 25 in Chile.

The Good Practice Guide will include recommendations for policymakers, including national governments, that could be used to guide national and regional adaptation plans, as well as the work of the RegionsAdapt initiative. It will further constitute a source that could be used by regional governments who seek collaboration with national counterparts and will support Regions4’s work as our contribution to the COP 25 and the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

We invite all regional governments to take 30 minutes of their time to complete the survey (EN, FR, ES) by 31 August and all partners to disseminate the survey among their networks in order to collect as many inputs from regional governments as possible.
