On 19 March 2014, European Commissioner for Climate Action Connie Hedegaard launched Mayors Adapt, a new initiative that inspires cities to take action to tackle climate change.

Mayors Adapt – the Covenant of Mayors Initiative on Adaptation to Climate Change – has been set up by the European Commission to engage cities in taking action. Cities signing up to the initiative commit to the overall aim of the EU Adaptation Strategy, to develop local adaptation strategies within the first two years of signing and review the outcomes on a biannual basis.
