The State Environmental Fund of the Czech Republic launches the first call in the Environment, Ecosystems and Climate Change Programme, in which it will offer legal entities CZK 26 million to develop adaptation strategies to adapt to climate change at local and regional level. In the call, named after the Norwegian metropolis, applicants can receive up to 1,3 million Czech crowns, respectively cover up to 90 percent of the project’s eligible costs. The applications can be submitted online from January 14 to March 15, 2020.
The negative impacts of climate change are among the most socially discussed topics of the present. Therefore, the creation of strategic documents setting out the long-term approach of municipalities, cities and regions to their adaptation is more than necessary. A new Oslo call funded by the EEA and Norway grants 2014-2021 will help with their preparation.
Supported activities are activities related to the development and adoption of Adaptation Strategies, including their analytical background documents and discussions, before their adoption by the relevant executive body.
The amount of support ranges from 130 thousand to 1,3 million Czech crowns.
Applicants may submit their aid applications from 14 January to 15 March 2020 via the online form in the Agenda Information System of the State Environmental Fund of the Czech Rebulic. Further details of the call and detailed conditions are available at the website of the Fund.
