Elaboration of the Regional Climate Change Adaptation Plan (2023-2030)

The Regional Ministry of Sustainability and Ecological Transition of the Government of La Rioja considers it essential to draw up a Regional Plan for Adaptation to Climate Change 2023-2030 that specifies the objectives, criteria, areas of application and actions needed to anticipate and minimise the damage that climate change could cause in numerous economic sectors and in La Rioja society in general.

The La Rioja Climate Change Adaptation Plan 2023-2030 will constitute the strategic planning and implementation instrument for regional action on climate change adaptation over the next eight years.

The objective of this project is therefore to draw up this Regional Adaptation Plan. To this end, the analysis of previous studies, planning and current regulations at different levels will define the specific context of the Plan and this will allow the correct development of all the work and drafting of documents associated with the different phases.

Regarding the Plan elaboration process, Metroeconomica provides the following services:

  • Conduct an economic analysis of adaptation measures by identifying their cost-benefit and/or cost-effectiveness.
  • Economically assess the adaptation to climate change in the Rioja, understood as the cost reduction related to future climate risks and damages that will be achieved. This will be carried out by identifying reference studies on the cost of environmental degradation (by sectors) associated with climate change and the estimation of the economic value of adaptation in La Rioja: value-transfer method.
