Municipalities and counties from the Jelenia Góra Agglomeration area are joining the effort to draft a shared Climate Change Adaptation Plan for the Jelenia Góra Agglomeration.

Drafted for the City of Jelenia Góra and municipalities of the Agglomeration, the Plan will be used to assess the vulnerability of municipalities and counties to threats associated with climate changes, and co-ordinate local activities aimed at minimising adverse climate change-related economic, community and environmental effects.

The Plan will be a strategic document. The process of its drafting will include analyses affording an ultimate decision as to adaptation activities most favourable for the municipalities and counties of the Jelenia Góra Agglomeration, especially in terms of improving the life quality and safety of local residents.

The Plan will be drafted as part of the “Live, Reside and Work in Jelenia Góra!” project for purposes of which the City of Jelenia Góra secured funds from the “Local Development” Programme funded under the 3rd edition of the EEA and Norway Grants for the years 2014-2021.
