Applications are now open for the Better Prepared Regional and Local Authorities to Adapt to Climate Change grant program.
Yes true it is that the global climate crisis is an existential threat to the world as they know it. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is crucial, but even stopping all emissions would not stop the climate impacts that are already occurring, and which are likely to continue for decades.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taught them a lesson about how closely connected environmental, societal and human health issues are. What they have lived through and still will is a foretaste of the shocks that climate change will increasingly cause in the future.

The deadline to submit applications for this program is 14-Sep-21.
