Mayors Adapt is an initiative of the European Commission’s Directorate General Climate Action. It is launched in the context of the EU Adaptation Strategy and is implemented within the Covenant of Mayors, the flagship European initiative for cities to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Mayors Adapt is supported by the European Environment Agency (EEA). The main outputs from the project are planned to be included in the European Climate Adaptation Platform CLIMATE-ADAPT, a partnership between the European Commission and the EEA.
144 local authorities officially signed the Mayors Adapt initiative. Almost all the Mediterranean Cities leading a Climate Change Adaptation Plan are part of them.
