Table 1.3.5       Funding models and sources for adaptation platforms

Adaptation Platform

Funding Source



Created using project funds (Ministry of Environment); updated in January 2013 using funds from the Austrian Climate and Energyfonds


Funded by the Ministry of the Environment, maintained by the Danish Nature Agency


Originally developed with support from Life+ EU funding. Maintained jointly by the Finnish Meteorological Institute and the Finnish Environment Institute with substance contributions from Aalto University and other research institutes. Funding partly based on external projects for developing the portal.



Funded and maintained by Ministère de l’Ecologie du Développement durable et de l’Energie

Germany  – Created through projects funded by the Federal Ministry of the Environment; maintenance funded by UBA with the platform integrated into the Environment Federal Agency website


Ministry of National Development


Development stage funded by Ireland’s Environment Protection Agency with options for funding and sustaining an operational platform under exploration


Funds for development and operations provided by the OECC (budget of the Ministry of Environment) and external funding is being sought to support further development

The Netherlands

Development was funded by the Delta programme together with the Knowledge for Climate programme. These two programmes, both funded by the government, commissioned the development of the platform


Annual financial support from the Ministry of Climate and Environment


Initially funded through the KLIMADA project during which it was managed and administered by the Institute of Environmental Protection, but now the maintenance and all changes are funded by the Ministry of the Environment with the platform operating as part of the Ministry’s servers.  The platform is considered/linked to specific project funding (for updating and adding new material)


Platform is part of the Federal Office for the Environment website and budget


Funding (5 years until 2015) is provided to support the Knowledge Centre with no funds specifically targeted for the portal.

United Kingdom Developed, managed and funded by the UK government

UKCIP Funded by Defra until 2012 and subsequently by UKCIP and the Environmental Change Institute, Oxford University. 

Climate Ready Support Service and its delivery through partner organisations is funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) on behalf of the UK Government.



Funding is mainly project-based and is dependent on external funding. It also counts on funding from the 8 territories included in the Working Community of the Pyrenees.

Alpine Region

Developed by the C3-Alps project, coordinated by the Environment Agency Austria and co-funded by the Alpine Space programme through the European Regional Development – European Territorial Cooperation 2007-2013. Decision regarding long-term future financing expected in 2015.



EEA is hosting the platform while the further functional developments are funded by the European Commission. The Commission also indirectly funds content through contracts (DG CLIMA) or other EU funds (Interreg, research). The content updating is done by the EEA, supported by the European Topic Centre on Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation (ETC CCA) funded by the EEA.

    Funding for adapteCCa came from the Ministry budget but not specifically from OECC budget, so we suggest to remove "by the OECC"

    Text in the table now reads:

    'Funds for development and operations were provided from the budget of the Ministry of Environment'
