A survey was conducted, based on a questionnaire developed within the projects ECOSUPPORT and BalticClimate. The respondents were representatives from municipalities in the Kaliningrad region. The answers showed that at the present time the climate related problems are not of high importance since other problems prevail, most of all – the socioeconomic problems. Therefore the municipality management is performed without taking climate change into account despite the fact that many scientific institutions emphasize the problem of climate change and its consequences. Municipal development strategies were discussed and their relationship to climate change.
