How do you integrate the climate actions with other parts of the municipalities actions? Do you have examples of plans or strategy documents where the climate targets or SECAP has been mentioned?

    In Belgium, we encourage our municipalities to consider the changing climate in every aspect of their policy process and action plans. We are now organising meetings with all different departments within the municipal organisation, to raise awareness that climate change will be something they need to consider more and more in their planning and budget. For the moment, the SECAP is rarely mentioned in other plans (as far as I know at least), but we hope to change this the coming years through this active approach of engaging with every municipal department.
