  • The Vlaamse Milieu Maatschappij (VMM) offers two supplementary tools tailored specifically for municipalities.
    • the PLAN-tool assists municipalities in formulating their adaptation plans by exploring a range of possible adaptation measures. This enables local authorities to proactively address climate-related challenges and enhance resilience within their communities.
