Urban Adaptation and Health

The main objective of the Thematic Centre on Urban Adaptation and Health is to enhance the understanding and knowledge of the staff of municipalities on climate change adaptation aspects, and to encourage urban settlements in SEE to assess the feasibility of implementing known adaptation policies and measures already developed for use on a larger scale (regional, national and ecosystem).

One pilot studiy will be carried out under the thematic centre:

Pilot Study 6: Vulnerability assessment in Budapest and Veszprém

This pilot study aims to demonstrate the applicability of adaptation measures and policies in two Hungarian municipalities. The study will focus on possible ways to integrate adaptation measures in existing and future development plans. A specific objective is to identify a list of feasible, applicable adaptation measures for the main economic sectors and/or ecosystems that are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
