Climate Chance Summit Europe 2022

How to plan our cities while adapting to the effects of climate change?

How to plan our cities while adapting to the effects of climate change?

The consequences of climate change particularly affect urban environments: extreme weather phenomena, heat waves, flooding, etc. Urban planning is a key area for adaptation.

How can we provide responses tailored to various local contexts in situations where territories are unequally affected by the effects of climate change? What ambitious measures should be taken to support adapted city planning in Europe? Networks of local authorities, agencies and elected representatives will meet to discuss and develop concrete proposals.

Thematic draft proposals for the implementation of the European Green Deal
