Paris Oasis Schoolyard Programme, France

After the devastating 2003 and 2017 heatwaves and in light of projections that predict increasing frequency and duration of heatwaves in the future, the City of Paris embarked on developing a range of initiatives to address this threat recognising that different social groups and different areas of the city have unequal vulnerabilities. Having identified the high level of soil sealing and lack of access to green cool spaces as some of the key spatial factors behind increased vulnerability to heatwaves, Paris developed the “OASIS – Openness, Adaptation, Sensitisation, Innovation and Social Ties” schoolyard greening programme, an example of just adaptation initiative that addresses the most vulnerable population

Developing Adaptive Capacity to Extreme events in the Rhinebasin

The overall aim of ACER is to investigate the impact of climate change and to explore adaptation strategies for the Rhine basin under climate change, for both basin wide as well as regional water managers. The ACER project follows a so-called scenario analysis whereby solution trajectories are analyzed and compared, under the assumption of various long-term climate change and socio-economic scenarios

Building fire resilience using recycled water in Riba-Roja de Túria, Spain

Riba-Roja de Túria is a municipality located in the National Park of Túria in Valencia (Spain) which represents one of the last remaining forestry lungs in its metropolitan area. The Túria Park also represents a clear example of the scarce and valuable Mediterranean riparian forests associated with the River Túria

European State of the Climate 2021

The European State of the Climate (ESOTC) is compiled by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), implemented by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) on behalf of the European Commission. The ESOTC's findings are based on data and expertise from C3S, as well as other Copernicus services and external partners.

WILD HOPPER - Heavy-Duty UAV for day and night firefighting operations

T he WILDHOPPER project aimed at developing a heavy-duty multirotor drone for forest firefighting.   Besides fire monitoring, the 600-litre platform yields to WILD HOPPER enough lifting power to be used as an alternative to traditional firefighting solutions and cover night operations

Innovating Climate services through Integrating Scientific and local Knowledge

Climate services offer information about climate change in terms of impacts and possible adaptation measures. They are crucial for climate-smart decisions based on solid scientific evidence, compatible with sustainable European economy, lifestyle, environmental protection and resource use, resiliency to climate change and, ultimately, climate neutrality

Environmental public goods From Farming through Effective Contract Targeting

The EFFECT project aims to assess agri-environmental funding programmes and investment grants implemented by EU member states to accelerate eco-innovation, as well as the growing number of environmental certification and labelling schemes established by private actors in this field. Many initiatives are arguably not cost-effective in boosting environmental and climate service provision, may be skewed in terms of distributional impacts, increase risks to farmers, or involve excessive transaction costs

Transition Pathway for Tourism

On 10 March 2020, the Commission adopted a new industrial strategy. The aim was to help EU industry lead the green and digital transformations and to boost the EU's global competitiveness and open strategic autonomy
