Climate-Friendly Cities: A Handbook on the Tracks and Possibilities of European Cities in Relation to Climate Change. (2011)
In an age where global challenges will significantly influence the life of each city, the Hungarian EU Presidency pays special attention to sustainable development of cities and towns. The Presidency aims to contribute to European urban policy thinking by focusing on climate change, a major challenge that our cities face. This document supports European cities and towns in their combat against climate change by widening the European knowledge base. It has been developed for city management teams, decision makers, public officials in charge of managing processes and their supporting expert staff. Adopting an integrated approach, the handbook covers nearly all areas of city development and management. The comprehensive nature of this approach only allows a limited amount of in-depth technical knowledge for specialists.
