The impact project ‘Rainwater, tax or reward‘ (Hemelwater belasten of belonen) by the work stream Differentiating Taxes of the Green Deal Green Roofs has developed into the new ‘Alliance financial incentives for climate adaptation’ (Alliantie financiële prikkels voor klimaatadaptatie). This alliance is working together with new partners, in association with the Delta Plan on Spatial Adaptation. The Alliance aims to stimulate citizens and companies to (re)arrange their buildings and gardens in a climate adaptive way and focuses on learning through pilots. This way they seek to further develop these incentives together.
To further research and develop the essential effects of the different financial incentives, the Alliance will carry out pilots with corresponding cross-sectioned working groups. These working groups will engage in collective research subjects and will, if necessary, conduct their own research.
For the period 2019-2020 local authorities have the possibility to receive a financial contribution (Dutch) from the Government to hire expertise to carry out the pilots ‘financial incentives’ (financiële prikkels).
On the 6th of June the Alliance meets up to accentuate the pilots and together define the agenda for the different working groups. Local authorities who are interested can apply by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
