– Deploy full-scale demonstrations of innovative solutions with concrete measurable impacts
– Involve local actors, communities and citizens
– Carry out demonstration activities in 5 different regions belonging to the Atlantic and/or Arctic sea basin
– Involve at least 10 ‘associated regions’ as third parties to showcase the feasibility, replicability and scale up of the solutions developed

– Upscaling of innovative solutions building climate resilience for coastal areas, making communities climate-proof and weather-resilient
– Collaboration and twinning between most advanced and front-runners regions on climate adaptation
– Acceleration of synergetic transformation to climate neutrality and climate resilience in coastal areas
– Technological, logistical, social and economic innovation
– Basin-scale cooperation, including through transition arrangements
