After green roofs, Milan bids on nature-based solutions to fight climate change

After green roofs, Milan bids on nature-based solutions to fight climate change. On October 30, 2018, the Metropolitan City of Milan hosted a meeting of a new project: LIFE Metro-Adapt, a project funded by the European fund for the environment (LIFE). LIFE Metro-Adapt is a three-year project aimed at improving the ability of the Metropolitan City of Milan to adopt adaptation strategies to climate change.

The partners’ consortium is led by the Metropolitan City of Milan, and includes Ambiente Italia, Alda, CAP Holding, e-GEOS and Legambiente Lombardia. LIFE Metro-Adapt is based on the idea that by combining local adaptation strategies together with common and well-structured governance, the capacity of the local authorities of Milan to adapt to climate change can improve.

The project will produce different outputs, the most important being the mainstreaming of adaptation measures to climate change in the urban plans of the municipalities of the Metropolitan City of Milan, the production and integration of data sets and monitoring tool to carry out high quality vulnerability analysis and the implementation of 2 Nature- Based Solutions. The project has also the ambition to share the results with other Italian and European cities and raise citizens’ awareness about the importance of adaptation strategies. The dissemination activities include an online platform and manual on Nature-Based Solutions, thematic and information sessions with citizens, national and international conferences and webinars.

More information and updates on the project can be found on the FB page LIFE Metro Adapt and through the dedicated website
