1) Objective

Climate change adaptation SIPs should help achieve the objectives of Article 5 of the European Climate Law24 or the EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change. In order to do so, SIPs should support the implementation of national climate change adaptation strategies or plans, as required under the European Climate Law, or comparable regional, multi-regional or transnational strategies and plans. More specifically, they are expected to select and implement a clearly defined set of actions in the corresponding adaptation strategy or plan, which are to be financed by LIFE. Applicants should explain how and to what extent this set of actions will help to implement the overall strategy or plan.

Also, in order to substantially contribute to the implementation of this strategy or plan, SIPs should specify
– additional, complementary adaptation actions, which are to be funded by other EU, national or private funding sources;
– how the project will mobilise complementary funds that can finance activities beyond the scope and timeframe of what is funded by LIFE, like measures to integrate climate adaptation objectives in private investment decisions;
– auxiliary actions that facilitate the implementation of the overall strategy or plan, such as capacity-building;
– how the project ensures the involvement of, and coordination between, all relevant levels of government.
