Climate Change Adaptation Action Plan and Vulnerability Assessment

Description:

Rising temperatures and weather extremes like floods and storms could be detrimental to the quality of life in Serbian towns. Towns must be prepared to cope with the effects of climate change as structures and the urban living environment are especially vulnerable. At the same time well-functioning towns and cities are among the most important prerequisites for sustainable economic development. Lack of systematic planning in response to climate change.

The City of Belgrade developed this Climate Change Adaptation Action Plan and Vulnerability Assessment within the regional project “Climate Change Adaptation in the Western Balkans” implemented by the German International Cooperation Agency (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit – GIZ).

The vulnerability assessment analyses extreme weather events in the past and assesses the current vulnerability to extreme weather events in Belgrade. Future risks and opportunities are based on climate data for the city of Belgrade in the present time period and on climate projections as well as on the results of the vulnerability assessment for the city of Belgrade.

The action plan includes a list of measures and activities that will be undertaken to adapt to climate change, including responsibilities, time frame, i.e. description of short–term measures and activities (until 2017); medium–term measures and activities (until 2020); long–term measures and activities (until 2025) and prioritization of measures.
