LIFE RADOMKLIMA-PL Adaptation to climate change through sustainable management of water of the urban area in Radom City

Description:

LIFE RADOMKLIMA PL’s overall objective is to make the city of Radom more resilient to climate change by building demonstration ‘green/blue infrastructure’ for managing extreme storm water flows and controlling local flood risks. The aim is to mitigate extreme flows of water coming from outside the city and increase storm water retention by restoring and creating multi-use retention areas (while creating habitats for biodiversity), and by re-naturalising the river to restore its natural retention capacity.

Specific objectives for the inner city are to:

    • Demonstrate new ways to mitigate extreme runoffs on sealed surfaces in the inner city to minimise local flooding, extreme overflow to drainage system and inflow to natural habitats of the city river;
    • Integrate and enhance biodiversity in all project actions, particularly restoration of habitats in urban water bodies and creation of micro-habitats in the climate adaptation infrastructure in the city;
    • Mainstream climate adaptation into city planning and increase knowledge on the subject for informed decision-making at local level through the establishment, operation and assistance of two working groups with broad stakeholder participation throughout the project implementation;
    • Raise awareness of and build capacity for climate adaptation through building urban green/blue infrastructure to promote understanding of the impacts of climate change on economic, social, and environmental conditions as well as health in the city, and to communicate the importance of cost-effective adaption options; and
    • Exchange experience in climate change adaptation through building urban green/blue infrastructure and territorial multi-level adaptation approach. Outputs such as vulnerability assessment, comprehensive approach to multi-level territorial rainwater management, GIS tools, and demonstration green/blue infrastructure will be shared with other interested parties.
