Stakeholder consultation in Budapest

Sep 17, 2014

A stakeholder meeting took place on September 17, 2014, in Budapest’s District 13.

The main objectives of the event were to raise awareness of the climate change adaptation challenges faced by urban settlements and to encourage stakeholders and decision makers in Budapest's District 13 to initiate adaptation activities for better public health in urban areas. More than 50 participants attended the event, which was an opportunity for the sharing of information about the urban adaptation measures undertaken in the municipality. Presentations were made on the results of the pilot study carried out in the municipality; the municipality's climate change adaptation practice, taking into account the outcomes of the OrientGate project; and Hungary's new National Climate Change Strategy. The event ended with a roundtable discussion on the role of public participatory planning and communication in climate change adaptation.  

Further details of the meeting can be found in the agenda (in Hungarian).
