RESIN City Assessment Report - Bratislava (2016)

Description

RESIN is a 3.5-year EU-funded interdisciplinary research project investigating climate resilience in European cities. Four city assessment reports written on the RESIN cities Bratislava, Bilbao, Greater Manchester and Paris will allow the cities as well as RESIN project partners to assess which adaptation and critical infrastructure protection strategies, plans and measures are already in place or planned as well as enable the local government and the stakeholders to better understand each city’s needs in the adaptation and critical infrastructure protection process.

This report presents the City of Bratislava’s plans, strategies and activities it has adopted and is undertaking in light of climate change.

At first, the city’s demographic and economic features are described (e.g., average age of inhabitants, ethnic diversity, unemployment and GDP per capita, health and vulnerability of people, housing and territorial development). The report also shows the first results of a spatial analysis of vulnerable population groups and areas. The report then showcases the city’s critical infrastructure features and the measures it takes to protect them as well as adapt to climate change. Thus, important critical infrastructure protection and climate change adaptation plans and strategies at national and local levels are discussed. The report also highlights the steps the city itself has taken to at the same time ensure the sustainable development of the Slovakian capital. In addition, several international projects have been conducted to make the city more resilient. Current and potential financial sources, which are needed to propose and implement the measures necessary, are also introduced. The role and the involvement of stakeholders in implementing of critical infrastructure protection and climate change adaptation measures are also detailed.
