RegionsAdapt is the first global initiative for regional governments to take concrete actions, cooperate and report efforts in climate adaptation. The South Australian Government became a founding member of the initiative in December 2015. RegionsAdapt is helping to showcase the work the SA Government is doing in partnership with local communities.
The Regions Adapt initiative recognises that reducing emissions and adapting to global warming will be required across the world, and that it is at the subnational level where a strong adaptation response is most needed and where government has the capacity to act.
The initiative has been developed by the Government of Rio de Janeiro State and the Government of Catalonia, supported by the Network of Regional Governments for Sustainable Development (nrg4SD) and The Climate Group as an endorsing partner.
