Adaptation Resources

Adaptation resources

The Covenant of Mayors - Europe Office, often in cooperation with European or national authorities and other stakeholders, offers online and offline support, and also allows signatories to learn from each other. Whether you are just getting started on adaptation or already implementing or monitoring your adaptation plan, the Covenant community is here for you.

The Urban Adaptation Support Tool jointly developed by the Covenant of Mayors –Europe Office and the European Environment Agency, is the main adaptation resource for the Covenant community. It takes you through all the steps needed to develop and implement an adaptation strategy and refers you to valuable guidance materials and tools. The tool has been tested and approved by Covenant signatory cities.

The Urban Adaptation Map Viewer aims to provide an overview of the current and future climate hazards facing the European cities, the vulnerability of the cities to these hazards and their adaptive capacity. The map viewer collates information from various sources on the observed and projected spatial distribution and intensity of high temperatures, flooding, water scarcity, and wildfires.

An open platform that is designed for diverse needs and interests - from science, policy and practice; public, private and voluntary sectors; large and small organisations, as well as individuals providing a knowledge database, where the latest thinking on natural capital, ecosystem services and nature-based solutions is brought together.

In the restricted area for the Covenant community, you can exchange with peers through discussion forums and find further materials in the Covenant resource library. 'My Covenant' also features dedicated e-learning module on adaptation, and you can ask your peers for support thanks to the peer-to-peer learning tool.
