TRIPLE-C, Capitalising Climate Change

We support projects to tackle the territory’s resilience to climate change

Climate change and natural disasters pose a significant threat to communities around the world. Unfortunately, in the past, these communities have mainly operated in isolation from each other, reducing their ability to effectively reduce vulnerability to rising insecurities. 

The TRIPLE-C project aims to address this by achieving closer collaboration between different climate change-related initiatives carried out across the EU, contributing to strengthening the territory’s resilience to climate change and risks of natural origin.

The project focuses on analysing, evaluating, and capitalising on successful EU projects for preventing and managing risks associated with climate change. TRIPLE-C aims to disseminate and transfer best practices and results identified into policy-making. Through its platform and compendium of capitalised projects, TRIPLE-C shares best practices and results across Europe. This platform allows practitioners, local, regional, and national authorities to have access to continuous learning.

The project conducts research missions, knowledge events, and networking activities, creating synergies among projects and partners and building up a network to reinforce and enlarge the capacities in management action plans and strategies of the Atlantic territories. So far, the project has identified and capitalised on 259 different EU projects, from which 129 good practices have been extracted and studied in-depth. Each of the partners analysed projects in line with their skills and experience in order to propose documented and controlled solutions.  For example, Portugal focused on projects on fire management and natural environments. TRIPLE-C partners have also carried out over 40 bilateral interviews with capitalised project representatives to obtain first-hand information about the initiatives.

Overall, the TRIPLE-C project represents a significant step towards greater cooperation and collaboration between communities and initiatives dealing with climate change and natural disasters. Through its platform and the dissemination of best practices and results, TRIPLE-C aims to increase the effectiveness of reducing vulnerability to rising insecurities and strengthen the Atlantic Area's resilience.

In order to provide concrete answers to as many people as possible, the platform makes it possible to carry out research according to the risk incurred or according to the benefits of the project (safety, social, etc.).  Thus, a local authority can conduct a search according to a concrete local problem and an aspiration.  

The project leading partner is Association Climatologique de la Moyenne-Garonne et du Sud-Ouest (FR) and has overall 27 partners from 14 regions. TRIPLE-C has a budget of 1.81 M euros until 2023.
