Taking Action

Register your City

Mayors Adapt and the Covenant of Mayors initiative have been merged under one new umbrella initiative in October 2015: the new Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy. All information about how to join this Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy can be find here.

If you are a local authority already active in the field of adaptation, feel free to fill in the following form which will be used to create you own individual adaptation factsheet (see examples of factsheets here).

Only the underscored fields need to be filled in. However, there are additional fields you can use to inform other signatories about your city and showcase your actions to the adaptation community. We strongly recommend you fill in as many of the fields as possible.
