Project

LIFE ADAPTCITY : Preparation of a strategy of adaptation to climate change with use of city climate mapping and public participation

Description:

The main aim of the project is to reduce the negative impact of climate change on the city ecosystem of Warsaw and to use the Warsaw experience to encourage other Polish cities to undertake actions for climate change adaptation. The proposed actions include drawing up an adaptation strategy for Warsaw, which aims to prepare the city authority and citizens for dealing with climate change and implementing adaptation actions.

Specific project objectives are to:

  • Prepare a climate change adaptation strategy for Warsaw based on an ecosystem approach where technical and green infrastructures work together in line with EU Communication “Green Infrastructure - Enhancing Europe Green Capital” (COM/2013/0249);
  • Encourage city administrations and their municipal service providers to implement climate change adaptation based on the Warsaw experience;
  • Promote climate prediction maps as a tool for building climate change adaptation strategies for cities; and
  • Raise awareness of the climate change issues among city authorities and encourage them to engage in activities on a national and European level.
