Adaptation is essential to deal with the inevitable impacts of Climate Change and to take advantage of any opportunities that could generate in reducing the vulnerability of the socio-economic and natural systems and increasing their resilience.
Cities and towns are recognized to play a crucial role in the adaptation process across the EU.
An increased resilience should be pursued for our cities and our territories, not only through the implementation of techniques and projects aimed at mitigation, but also by means of adaptation to climate change.
In order to identify adaptation solutions and opportunities, it is needed to assess the impacts of Climate Change over the socioeconomic and natural systems, assess the main vulnerabilities at different spatial and temporal scales, and understand how to implement them into regional and local policies.
Veneto ADAPT aims to contribute to these aspects by providing methodologies and tools, in order to improve of the regional capacity to respond to the impact of climate change, with focus on hydrogeological risk.
