Project objectives

Active involvement of local leaders at county level in actions aimed at reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and fostering better adaptation to climate changes.

Enhancing practical measures and investments on the local level focused on climate protection and adaptation to its changes.

Beside the actions for climate protection taken at the local level, equally important is the simultaneous search for solutions that will contribute to the development of local economy and reduce the operating costs of individual entities.

Target audience

The project is addressed mainly to two target groups, i.e. local authorities and local communities on county level. Local authorities have the capacity for undertaking important tusks in the area of climate protection. Involvement of local communities is essential for the climate protection actions to be effective.

The project is conducted by three organizations:

  • Institute for Sustainable Development – a non-government ecological organization in the form of foundation seat in Warsaw, project leader and coordinating beneficiary.
  • Community Energy Plus – British organization seated in Camborne, Cornwall, being the first low carbon region in the United Kingdom, project partner, associated beneficiary
  • Association of Polish Counties – an organization affiliating of Polish counties seated in Nowy Sącz, Project partner, associated beneficiary
