The AELCLIC project would facilitate the continuity of the European Landscape capital as an expression of the European cultural and environmental diversity.

This goal is expected to be achieved by understanding the effects of climate change in the ecological and socio-economic structures governing the evolution of a set of valuable or highly used landscapes and by co-defining adaptive and mitigation strategies or policies with the participation of local and regional stakeholders.

The participation of economic agents linked to the main productive activities happening in those landscapes, of the people living, working or visiting those landscapes and of the public administrations involved in their official planning and management, would facilitate the development of feasible and realistic proposals. In addition, the AELCLIC project would support the implementation of the European Landscape Convention, a strategic document managed by the Council of Europe and ratified by almost all the European countries.

From an institutional perspective, the AELCLIC project would create a bridge between a wide range of European academic, civil, economic and governmental organizations working in the implementation of the European Landscape Convention and Climate Change adaptation.

The AELCLIC_Ideator aims at the following objectives:
- 1. Conformation of a germinal Consortium
- 2. Formulation of the key objectives, agendas and methods
- 3. Identification of the key criteria to select a set of representative and strategic European Pilot Landscapes (considering the potential exportability and scalability of the expected outcomes).
- 4. Definition of methods and procedures to advance in the AELCLIC Project.
