SpongeScapes is part of the EU Mission “Adaption to Climate Change”. The Mission focuses on supporting EU regions, cities and local authorities in their efforts to build resilience against the impacts of climate change. The Polish, French and Italian SpongeScapes case studies are located in regions that signed the Mission Charter of the EU Mission on Climate Adaptation, thereby committing to strive towards climate resilience by 2030 and receiving technical assistance from the Mission Implementation Platform (MIP4Adapt).
