Background on the Series
Cities around the world are already suffering different impacts deriving from climate change. Some of them include flood damage, extreme heat issues, droughts. Moreover, the indirect related effects can deeply affect many other sectors, cities or regions.
CMCC decided to create a series of virtual encounters in which outstanding experts from various professional fields provide different experiences and perspectives on urban adaptation to climate change. The aim is to provide a thorough insight on the issue by bringing together experts with different professional profiles and skills. Topics covered will include tools for strategic planning of sustainable cities, participatory policy development processes, nature-based solutions for resilient cities, along with the social aspects of urban adaptation and many more.
