What is the difference between Sustainable energy and climate action plan (SECAP) and an adaptation strategy?

SECAP is focused on actions leading to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the municipality. Actions in the energy sector, transport, etc. are therefore evaluated primarily in terms of their climate impacts. Meeting climate objectives is the main planning criterion, to which other aspects such as economic viability or overall energy stability of the area are subordinated. The SECAP also includes an analysis of the risks and vulnerability of the territory and proposals for adaptation to climate change. In this way it is similar to, and can partially replace, an adaptation strategy. However, the adaptation strategy addresses this topic in much more detail and using more advanced methods.
