SECAP: Supporting energy and climate adaptation policies

Supporting energy and climate adaptation policies

Programme:

INTERREG ITALIA-SLOVENIA

Objective:

The overall objective of SECAP is to foster the sustainable development of the cross-border territory by promoting low-carbon strategies for all types of territory, in particular urban areas, creating relevant adaptation and mitigation measures. The project, will lead to the cross-border sharing of tools, methodologies and databases and will generate positive effects on local planning in the whole programme area. The transition to a low-carbon society will be implemented in the infrastructure interventions of two (case) project partners and in the evolution of SEAPs into SECAPs for some municipalities/ITUs/metropolitan cities. The sustainable development models of the Covenant of Mayors will therefore be promoted by improving the quality of life and resilience to climate change.

Results:

The main results expected from the SECAP project are:

  1. A study on the impact of climate change on the Programme Area with methodological and BEI reports for the municipalities involved. To this end, a common methodology to be provided to the PAs for the effective and cost-effective definition of the BEI and MEIs (inventory & monitoring of emissions) will be tested.
  2. The creation of an inventory of strategies, measures and projects already established, that can be used to increase urban resilience, the creation of a bilingual online database of statistics and data on energy/climate/environment and an Italo-Slovenian atlas of territorial vulnerability with in-depth studies on an urban scale. This will be used as a basis for a coordinated approach to convert SEAPs into SECAPs, with a focus on the transition from mitigation to adaptation. The guidelines will promote the entry of those municipalities still outside the SEAP/SECAP process. These guidelines will be cross-border and unique for the Italian and Slovenian territories. After a training course, the Municipalities (at least 10) will be supported by the PPs in drafting the SECAP.
