Results of completed projects

Thirty-one projects were implemented in the first phase of the pilot programme between 2014 and 2016. They helped to raise awareness among a wide range of stakeholders and expand the knowledge and expertise required for practical action. Full details of the completed projects can be found in this project archive.

Dealing with natural hazards

Management of ecosystem changes and land use

Climate-adapted urban and settlement development

The first phase of the pilot programme made a significant contribution to implementing the Federal Council's adaptation strategy. This was the conclusion reached by an external evaluation. Working in five thematic clusters, the participating cantons, regions, communes, associations, companies and research institutions showed how practical steps can be taken to adapt to the consequences of climate change.

This video presents the pilot programme and shows results from the first phase (in German).
