The project is the result of a political decision: that of adapting to climate change at the regional level. This project is the first to be implemented on this scale. One of the good practices is the involvement of politicians in this project. The dissemination on social networks as well as on websites (partner’s website, official website) and the implementation of an agora is a positive practice for improving resilience. In addition, in parallel, the project is developing tools to evaluate the territories, so there is a double approach both technical and socio-political. At the level of good environmental practices, the project wishes to develop 53 measures divided into 6 areas.
The actions on risks are diverse, it is a question of both preventing risks, limiting them and adapting to the risk. The project aims to learn about the impacts of climate change through data acquisition and to develop techniques for the management of soils, parasites, diseases, cutlery and irrigation. The project aims to set up warning systems concerning the risk of drought, floods and erosion, as well as to help improve access to water. NAdapta assesses the risks of climate change on human health and wants to develop means of protection against new health risks. The project supports the management of vulnerable forests. Finally, in the face of global risks, NAdapta wants to improve the energy management of new infrastructures and improve the assessment of the vulnerability of infrastructures.
The project is the result of a regional political decision, it has an exemplary and insufflating role. The methods used are transferable.
Within the framework of the project, reviews on climate themes are published, the website is frequently updated, an exchange platform has been set up and social networks are used extensively.
The NAdapta project is promoted by the Government of Navarre (Department of Rural Development, Environment and Local Government; Department of Health, Navarre Institute of Public Health and Labour), in collaboration with the public companies GAN, NILSA, INTIA and NASUVINSA and the Public University of Navarre (UPNA). The project coordinator is the Government of Navarre.
The AGORA KLINA space has been created as a participation forum for all entities and individuals in Navarre who wish to be informed about climate change in Navarre and participate in the implementation of initiatives to tackle climate change.
One of the innovations of the project is at the level of the scale of action. This project is the first LIFE project to take into account the development of a region, in this case Navarre, in all the sectors and areas mentioned. It is the first regional strategy financed by the EU. This project is of interest within the framework of Triple C to assess the beneficial scales for adaptation to climate change. This project is an experiment in climate change adaptation.
One of the originalities of the project is to have listed on its website the barriers and the positive points of the project. Barriers: numerous sectors of action, demonstration to be implemented on a large scale and in a very extensive way, large and complex project management, heterogeneous bio-geographical context in the region.
