Information on the Adaptation to Climate Change Programme

On June 6, 2013, the Financial Mechanism Committee of the European Economic Area (EEA) Grants approved the Adaptation to Climate Change programme area. The fund operator for this programme is the Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC), and the donor partner is the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning (DSB). The total funding for the programme, which runs until April 30, 2017, is EUR 7,010,000.

The programme aims to promote a clear understanding of climate change impacts and vulnerability in Hungary; encourage actions to improve climate resilience at local level; raise awareness of climate change impacts; and share examples of replicable projects that contribute to reducing the impacts of climate change.

Programme components

The programme is divided into three main components, all of which focus on climate change adaptation:

  • The National Adaptation Geoinformatic System (C1, NAGiS)
  • Local climate change adaptation capacity building (C2)
  • Pilot projects focusing on climate change adaptation measures at local and regional level (C3)

The programme contributes to establishing a system that will: provide a sound basis for identifying adaptation options at different levels in Hungary; heighten awareness of adaptation efforts in Hungary; mobilise stakeholders and local-level decision makers; inform and empower actors to develop and implement local strategies; and strengthen climate resilience based on knowledge of local impacts and vulnerabilities. The pilot projects are intended to provide replicable examples of how resilience can be enhanced at both local and sub-regional level. One additional benefit of this outreach is that local populations will become more aware of climate-related issues and will begin to understand the tangible, local impacts of what are generally regarded as abstract phenomena.

The programme fosters cooperation between the donor state and Hungarian entities and contributes to strengthening bilateral relations in the field of adaptation to climate change. The DSB’s involvement in the implementation of the programme further strengthens its cooperation with the Hungarian ministries and public entities working on adaptation to climate change, as well as with the programme fund operator, the REC.
