The total indicative budget available is EUR 123.97 million. The deadline for submissions is 18 September 2024.

The call covers nine topics: 

  • HORIZON-MISS-2024-CLIMA-01-01 Bringing available and actionable solutions for climate adaptation to the knowledge of the regions and local authorities.
  • HORIZON-MISS-2024-CLIMA-01-02 Bringing together the national level with the engaged regional and local levels (multi-level governance).
  • HORIZON-MISS-2024-CLIMA-01-03 Develop and refine outcome indicators to measure progress on climate resilience at national, regional and local levels, including knowledge and feedback developed from the Mission.
  • HORIZON-MISS-2024-CLIMA-01-04 Research the complex interplay between the climate and biodiversity crises towards more systemic approaches and solutions.
  • HORIZON-MISS-2024-CLIMA-01-05 Improve design for transformative approaches and build local capacity for implementation of available solutions focused on climate adaptation.
  • HORIZON-MISS-2024-CLIMA-01-06 Demonstration of approaches to improve bankability of solutions by design, addressing the co-benefits (mitigation and adaptation) to improve revenues streams.
  • HORIZON-MISS-2024-CLIMA-01-07 Demonstration of solutions specifically suited to rural areas and small/ medium size population local communities.
  • HORIZON-MISS-2024-CLIMA-01-08 Demonstration of approaches by regions and local authorities focused on increasing climate resilience of the most vulnerable social groups (just climate resilience).
  • HORIZON-MISS-2024-CLIMA-01-09 Systemic and cross-sectoral solutions for climate resilience, tailored to the local needs of regions and local authorities.

Successful proposals are expected to contribute the implementation of the EU Adaptation Strategy, making EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries better prepared for the unavoidable impacts of climate change. They will act as accelerators and show the way in making climate adaptation smarter, swifter and more systemic. More specifically, proposals under this call will contribute to the following impacts: 

  • Accelerate the transformation to a climate resilient future in a number of regions.
  • Deploy at full scale the systemic transformations locally needed to build climate resilience, mainstreaming nature-based solutions in the approach.
