Summary / Abstract:

ENThe implementation of adaptation measures is going on local and regional levels. In Lithuanian reality, the process is poorly supported by national and regional legitimacy acts. This chapter focuses on gained experience in climate change adaptation process governance on local and regional levels in Lithuania. The role of local stakeholders is crucial and good practice examples of collaboration between researchers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), municipalities could be easily adopted even on the national level. The chapter provides the results from the EUINTERREG projects. Also, some results from BaltAdapt and BaltClim projects discussed issues related to multilevel governance (MLG), the role of environmental NGOs and local stakeholders in the preparation of the National Strategy for Climate Change Management Policy from 2013 till 2050 (NSCCMP) in Lithuania. Finally, the chapter illustrates importance of regional projects in the preparation of the NSCCMP and possible future improvements of MLG in Lithuania. [eLABa]
