How to finance adaptation measures? New participation processes will explore new options

Tight public budgets on local and regional level lead to scant budget made available for adaptation measures. The Future Cities partners as public local and regional bodies are experiencing this problem intensely: New activities in 2014 aim to activate stakeholders in order to jointly finance adaptation measures with private and public budgets. New participation processes will be developed and carried out in the Dutch cities Arnhem and Tiel. These processes will include financing and insurance institutions and empower inhabitants and entrepreneurs to take action.
