Spain: Toolbox for climate change adaptation in cities

“Toolbox for climate change adaptation in cities” project is carried out in partnership with the Ministry for the Ecological Transition, through Fundación Biodiversidad.

 

The project is designed to support professionals and technicians working in city councils, as well as companies and the third sector who are interested in contributing to sustainable cities through public-private collaboration.

 

On June 20th Forética published two new tools and presented some main conclusions of the project. One of these tools showcases examples of cities that have carried out successful initiatives on climate change adaptation. 12 cities (Addis Abeba, Copenhagen, London, Rotterdam, Singapore and Vancouver, and some Spanish cities, Barcelona, Madrid, Murcia Pamplona, Seville and Vitoria) have been selected as a reference in urban sustainability due to their high commitment to energy usage, urban mobility and biodiversity. In addition, most of these cities are part of international and national networks such as C40, CDP Cities and the Spanish Network of Cities for Climate. 

 

In addition, the project presents enterprise solutions to help local public administrations adapt climate change through innovative products and services in a range of sectors (water resources, urbanism, finance, transport, energy). It is outstanding that the circular economy has been identified as pivotal in different sectors.
