European Week of Regions and Cities: Workshops on local climate and energy action
11-12 October 2016

In the context of the 14th European Week of Regions and Cities several workshops related to local climate and energy action will take place in Brussels.

11 October - “Tackling energy poverty in European regions and cities” This workshop will focus on measures to tackle energy poverty at local level – whether through offering better access to energy or through energy efficiency and adaptation action. Local elected representatives will present successful solutions, point out challenges encountered on the ground, and discuss the type of support needed, in particular from the EU cohesion policy.

12 October - “Supporting urban climate change adaptation with Cohesion policy funds” (organised by the European Commission) Urban climate change adaptation is an important feature of the Cohesion policy and significant funds have been allocated to urban climate adaptation actions. Local authorities, with the support of their regions, are successfully using these funds and thereby create new opportunities to foster employment and innovation. This workshop will present the different funding and support opportunities available for urban adaptation action. Cities and regions will share their examples of implementation of projects with the help of these funds.
