Summary of the strategy/plan
This Sustainable Energy Action Plan contains information about the political and organizational context of the Plan, the Baseline Emission Inventory, and the actions that San Benedetto del Tronto Municipality will implement by 2020, as well as information on the achievement of the CO2 emissions reduction target. Adaptation is not the focus of this document.
Planned adaptation actions
In the future San Benedetto del Tronto would like to update its SEAP to include a plan for adaptation. Currently the city is involved in developing a "LIFE Adaptation" project aimed at adapting the coastal and marine ecosystems (the city manages a protected coastal area) with particular regard to the protection of habitats and cultural heritage against sea storms and coastal erosion.
