The LIFE IP Urban Klima 2050 project will unveil the actions to be carried out in the Basque Country’s largest climate action project in the coming years during the ADAPTtoCLIMATE international conference, that will be held virtually on 19 and 20 April.
This conference, which is being held within the LIFE UrbanProof project, will bring together scientists, political representatives and of different European organisations and projects to discuss aspects related to climate change, plans, strategies and infrastructures for adaptation in the urban environment in six sessions over two days.
On Monday 19 April, Ihobe, Dafne Mazo, a member of the Urban Klima 2050 coordinator team, will be taking part on the ‘Research into climate adaptation and financing plans and strategies’ panel. During her speech, Mazo will present 40 actions to be implemented in the project between 2019 and 2025 and whose aim is to transform the Basque territory by means of climate change mitigation and adaptation. Urban Klima 2050 is a project led by Ihobe, the publicly-owned company under the Basque Government’s Ministry for Economic Development, Sustainability and the Environment, and which is working with around twenty entities.
The general objective of the LIFE Urban Proof project, which is the driving force behind the ADAPTtoCLIMATE international conference, is to increase municipalities’ resilience to climate change by providing them with a powerful tool to support better informed decision-making regarding planning climate change adaptation. The project is co-funded by the LIFE Environment programme and Climate Action (2014-2020).
Coordinated by the Cyprus Department of Environment from its Climate Change Division, the project’s partners include the National Technical University of Athens, the Athens National Observatory, the IUAV University of Venice, and the municipalities of Reggio Emilia (Italy), Strovolos (Cyprus), Lakatamia (Cyprus), Peristeri (Greece).
