Life SEC Adapt - Upgrading Sustainable Energy Communities in Mayors Adapt initiative by planning Climate Change Adaptation strategies – has been approved within the framework of Life Programme 2014-2020. The partnership involves four EU member states (Italy, Croatia, Spain, Greece), having a total budget of € 3.213.785 for 40 months implementation period (01/09/2015- 31/12/2018).

Life Sec Adapt project aims to contribute to increase the climate resilience capacity of the European urban areas, thus facilitating the shift towards low-carbon economies.
The Italian and Croatian partners are actively engaged to climate mitigation carrying out their Sustainable Energy Action Plan, reached within the Covenant of Mayors initiative and developing Sustainable Energy Communities (SEC) in the two regions as output of CITYSEC project.
Moreover, they are characterized by similar territorial and climate conditions: the internal lands are characterized by mountains and hills that degrade to coast; both regions have relevant extension of coastal area, where are settled the main urban and productive infrastructures.

Considering the needs by project partners to improve local and cross-border strategies in order to better prevent and manage the effects of climate change (as extreme weather events) at urban scale, the main activity planned is to develop a specific adaptation strategy integrated with other planning activities, first of all the SEAP.
Moreover, Ancona Municipality (Marche region – IT), Bullas Municipality (ES) and ADEP S.A. (Municipal Enterprise for Planning & Development of Patras S.A. GR) will guide project partners to bridge the gap in terms of lack of awareness about climate adaptation at local/regional level thanks to their experience on planning adaptation strategies within LIFE ACT project.
Thanks to their participation to Life Sec Adapt, the Municipalities involved in the project intend to promote and update the "Sustainable Energy Communities" (SEC) model, making Local Communities the drivers for regional sustainable development through the coordination and support of Regional Authorities and Development Agencies.
