RESIST - Regions for climate change resilience through Innovation, Science and Technology
RESIST is a five-year project that has emerged from the need to make regions more resilient to climate change. The project will adopt a new practical framework in which climate adaptation pathways will be tested in four EU regions with different socioeconomic profiles: Southwest Finland, Central Denmark, Catalonia and Central Portugal.
Each region will test adaptation solutions to five key climate challenges: floods, droughts, heatwaves, wildfires, and soil erosion, and will bring together civil society, business, policymakers and the research community to work towards its future resilience.
Finnish piloting actions will be implemented in Turku region: stormwater management pilots in Katariinanlaakso and in Topinoja and rural water management pilot in Savijoki catchment located in city of Lieto.
