Mihaela Mircea, ENEA manager of the LIFE project "Veg Gap" will report on the results achieved so far by the project consortium, whose aim is to provide new tools and information to support the design of urban air quality plans in its three Pilot Cities (Bologna, Madrid and Milan) at the 3rd International Conference "ADAPTtoCLIMATE".
The speech "Life VEG-GAP project: vegetation impacts on air temperature and air quality" by Dr. Mircea will be presented during the VII Session of the Conference "Blue and green solutions for adaptation and mitigation" chaired by Prof. Loizidou and Giannakopoulos, experts in the field of integrated assessment of climate change impacts and consequent adaptation options at macro-regional level.
The main objective of the conference is to bring together all the actors who are today most committed to spreading shared environmental awareness on these issues, in particular scientists, officials and policy makers, as well as all environmental and citizens' organisations and associations.
The conference is held in the framework of the LIFE project UrbanProof ("Climate Proofing Urban Municipalities"), whose overall objective is to increase the resilience of territories to climate change. To achieve this goal UrbanProof is developing powerful tools to support decision-making in urban planning for climate change adaptation.
In the UrbanProof project, a wide range of regional climate models and statistical downscaling techniques will be used to assess future climate change at regional and local level. Furthermore, existing and future vulnerabilities and available climate change adaptation measures will be identified and assessed.
