ALDA joins the Euromed France Network!

This month, ALDA joins the renowned network of French organizations Euromed (REF). The REF brings together some 40 French civil society organizations (associations, collectives and trade unions) in the countries of the Mediterranean. The important involvement of ALDA in the Mediterranean region, through its projects and partnerships, will contribute jointly to the REF actions aimed at contributing to the respect for human rights, gender equality and the right of peoples to self-determination, through the exchange of practices and the reflection with the other members of the network.
On the occasion of this union, ALDA has joined the Steering Committee of the “Jeunesses Méditerranéennes” program, which will take place in April in Tunis. This event, organized annually by the REF, is articulated around intergenerational meetings of civil society dealing with various topics, in particular, that of the employment, the citizen participation, the migrations, the art and the culture, but still of social and climate justice.
This major event is a continuation of the first meetings that took place in Paris (October 2015), Casablanca (April 2017) and Algiers (April 2018), which brought together more than 70 CSOs representatives from all the countries of the Mediterranean. ALDA is very pleased to be now part of the REF, being aware of its impact in the region, and looks forward to working with its stakeholders in the search for more just, democratic and inclusive spaces.

The legacy of Pawel Adamowicz in Gdańsk, in ALDA, and in the enlarged Europe

Supporting local democracy and citizens’ participation for communities development as well as offering European perspectives for the future of Eastern Partnership countries

Last month, Pawel Adamowicz, Mayor of Gdańsk – one of the main cities in Poland – lost his life under tragic circumstances. For everyone in ALDA, this was shocking news. With the spirit that has built our relationship, we would like to continue the legacy of Adamowiczand make sure that all what we have started together will continue, stronger and empowered.

The success of the city of Gdańsk is an example of the continuous commitment in local democracy as a mean for local development. ALDA will therefore capitalize this experience and further strengthen its efforts to make it crystal clear, with a powerful example, that citizens mobilisation at the local level and their participation in the decision-making process is a real tool for the social and economic development of a community. We worked together with the city of Gdańsk on practices of citizens panels, which identified the paths to follow to make the society grow and develop. Gdańsk was involved in several projects designed by ALDA for sustainable and inclusive development in the metropolitan areas of Gdańsk (such as the project ИМЕЯ В ВИДУ), and this will continue.

As for upcoming European Parliament elections, ALDA will be close to its members, as the city of Gdańsk, to support a widespread awareness raising campaign on the challenges coming up. The European orientations of Central Europe should be strengthened, and with that the whole European project. The added value of Poland in Europe should never be underestimated – we have to work together to enhance Polish citizens’ participation and involvement.

Pawel Adamowicz was the initiator, together with the city of Mariupol in Eastern Ukraine, of the Local Democracy Agency Mariupol. We are strongly committed to continuing this endeavour to keep hearing his voice loud and clear in our work: “Europe gave us so much, that we should be committed now to sharing with others all what we have received”. The LDA Mariupol is active in promoting citizens’ participation and local governance in a difficult place of Ukraine, at the border with the area of the Donbass. The partnership with Gdańsk will continue and further increase. The work with CORLEAP of the Committee of the Regions, of which Adamowicz was a member, will also continue and be empowered.

In many ways, our friend and mentor, in many ways, will be part of ALDA. We feel the responsibility to do better and more, remembering him for all what he did for our common vision and endeavour.

Pour tout le monde à ALDA, c’était une nouvelle choquante. Avec le même esprit avec lequel notre relation a été construite, nous voudrions poursuivre le chemin d’Adamowicz et nous assurer que tout ce que nous avons commencé ensemble continuera, plus fort et puissant.

Le succès de la ville de Gdańsk est un exemple de comment un engagement constant dans la démocratie locale mène au développement local. ALDA capitalisera donc sur cette expérience et intensifiera ses efforts pour faire comprendre, avec un exemple frappant, que la mobilisation des citoyens au niveau local et leur participation au processus de prise de décision, constituent des véritables outils de développement social et économique. Nous avons collaboré avec la ville de Gdańsk sur les pratiques des comités citoyens, utiles au développement et au bien-être de la société. Gdańsk a été impliquée dans plusieurs projets conçus par ALDA pour le développement durable et inclusif dans les zones métropolitaines de la ville (comme le projet ИМЕЯ В ВИДУ), et cela se poursuivra.

En ce qui concerne les prochaines élections au Parlement européen, l’ALDA sera proche de ses membres, en de la Ville de Gdańsk, afin de soutenir une vaste campagne de sensibilisation aux défis à venir. Les tendances pro-européennes de l’Europe centrale doivent être renforcées, ainsi que l’ensemble du projet européen. La valeur ajoutée de la Pologne en Europe ne doit pas être sous-estimée, au contraire il est indispensable de travailler ensemble pour améliorer la participation des citoyens polonais.

Pawel Adamowicz était l’initiateur, avec la ville de Marioupol, en Ukraine orientale, de l’Agence de la démocratie locale de Marioupol. Nous sommes fermement déterminés à poursuivre cet effort pour continuer à faire entendre sa voix dans notre travail : « L’Europe nous a tant donné, que nous devons nous engager maintenant afin de partager avec les autres tout ce que nous avons reçu ». L’ADL Mariupol travaille activement pour la promotion de la participation des citoyens et de la gouvernance locale dans un endroit difficile de l’Ukraine, à la frontière avec la région du Donbass. Le partenariat avec Gdańsk se poursuivra et se développera davantage. Le travail avec le CORLEAP du Comité des régions, dont Adamowicz était membre, se poursuivra et sera également renforcé.

Pawel, notre ami et mentor, fera toujours partie de l’ALDA. Nous sentons la responsabilité de faire mieux et plus, en nous souvenant de lui pour tout ce qu’il a fait pour notre vision et nos efforts communs.

Наследие Павла Адамовича в Гданьске, в ALDA и в расширенной Европе

Поддержка местной демократии и участия граждан в развитии сообществ, а также предложение европейских перспектив для будущего стран Восточного партнерства

В прошлом месяце Павел Адамович, мэр Гданьска – одного из главных городов Польши – погиб при трагических обстоятельствах. Для всех в ALDA это была шокирующая новость. С духом, который выстроил наши отношения, мы хотели бы продолжить наследие Адамовича и сделать так, чтобы все, что мы начали вместе, продолжалось, укреплялось и расширялось.

Успех города Гданьска является примером постоянной приверженности местной демократии как средству местного развития. Таким образом, ALDA будет использовать этот опыт и активизировать свои усилия, чтобы наглядно продемонстрировать на убедительном примере, что мобилизация граждан на местном уровне и их участие в процессе принятия решений является реальным инструментом социально-экономического развития страны, сообщества. Мы работали вместе с городом Гданьском над практиками групп граждан, которые определили пути, по которым нужно развиваться обществу. Гданьск участвовал в нескольких проектах, разработанных ALDA для устойчивого и всестороннего развития в столичных районах Гданьска (напр. ИМЕЯ В ВИДУ), и эта деятельность продолжится.

Что касается предстоящих выборов в Европейский парламент, ALDA будет рядом со своими членами, одним из которых является и город Гданьск, чтобы поддержать широкую кампанию по повышению осведомленности о предстоящих проблемах. Европейские ориентации Центральной Европы должны быть усилены, а вместе с этим и весь европейский проект. Не следует недооценивать значимость Польши в Европе – мы должны работать вместе для расширения вовлечения польских граждан.

Павел Адамович был инициатором, вместе с г. Мариуполем на востоке Украины, создания Агентства местной демократии Мариуполя. Мы твердо намерены и впредь слышать его голос громко и четко в нашей работе: «Европа дала нам так много, что мы должны быть привержены тому, чтобы делиться с другими всем, что мы получили». LDA Мариуполь активно содействует участию граждан и местному самоуправлению в проблемном городе Украины, на границе с районом Донбасса. Партнерство с Гданьском будет продолжаться и расширяться. Работа с проектом CORLEAP от Комитета Регионов, членом которого был Адамович, также будет продолжаться.

Во многом наш друг и наставник будет всегда частью ALDA. Мы чувствуем ответственность за наши поступки, за их улучшение, вспоминая его за все то, что он сделал для нашего общего видения.


Zaostavština Pavela Adamovica u Gdanjsku, ALDA-i i celoj Evropi

Podrška lokalnoj demokratiji i učešću građana u razvoju zajednica, kao i pružanje evropskih perspektiva za budućnost zemalјa Istočnog partnerstva

Prošlog meseca, Pavel Adamovic, gradonačelnik Gdanjska – jedan od glavnih gradova u Polјskoj – izgubio je život pod tragičnim okolnostima. Za sve u ALDA-i, ovo je bila šokantna vest. U duhu našeg odnosa, želeli bismo da nastavimo nasleđe Adamovica, i da se pobrinemo da da sve ono što smo započeli zajedno nastavimo još jače i bolje.

Uspeh grada Gdanjska je primer kontinuirane posvećenosti lokalnoj demokratiji kao sredstvu za lokalni razvoj. ALDA će stoga iskoristiti ovo iskustvo i dodatno ojačati svoje napore kako bi pojasnili, uz snažan primer, da je mobilizacija građana na lokalnom nivou i njihovo učešće u procesu donošenja odluka pravi alat za društveni i ekonomski razvoj zajednice. Radili smo zajedno sa gradom Gdanjskom na skupovima građana, koji su identifikovali puteve koje treba pratiti kako bi društvo raslo i razvijalo se. Gdanjsk je bio uklјučen u nekoliko projekata koje je ALDA osmislila za održivi i inkluzivni razvoj u gradskim područjima Gdanjska (kao što je projekat “MEANING”), i ta saradnja će se nastaviti.

Što se tiče predstojećih izbora za Evropski parlament, ALDA će biti uz svoje članice, kao i grad Gdanjsk, kako bi podržali kampanju zagovaranja o izazovima koji se pojavlјuju. Evropska orijentacija centralne Evrope treba da ojača, a time i čitav evropski projekat. Dodata vrednost Polјske u Evropi nikada ne bi trebalo da se potcenjuje – moramo da radimo zajedno kako bismo pobolјšali učešće i uklјučenost polјskih građana.

Pavel Adamovic je bio inicijator, zajedno sa gradom Marijupoljem u Istočnoj Ukrajini, Agencije lokalne demokratije Marijupolj. Snažno smo posvećeni nastojanju da nastavimo da čujemo njegov glas glasno i jasno u našem daljem radu: „Evropa nam je dala toliko mnogo, da bismo sada trebali biti posvećeni delјenju sa drugima svega što smo dobili“. LDA Marijupolj koja se nalazi u oblasti Ukrajine sa komplikovanom situacijom, na granici sa područjem Donbasa, aktivna je u promovisanju učešća građana i lokalne uprave. Partnerstvo sa Gdanjskom će se nastaviti i povećavati i ubuduće. Rad sa CORLEAP-om Komiteta regiona, čiji je Adamovic bio član, takođe će se nastaviti i biti osnaženo.

Naš prijatelј i mentor će, na mnogo načina, i dalje biti deo ALDA-e. Osećamo odgovornost da činimo bolјe i više, prisećajući se svega što je učinio za našu zajedničku viziju i napore.

تراث بافل أدموفيتش بغدانسك, في كل من ألدا و أوروبا الموسعة

دعم الديمقراطية المحلية ومشاركة المواطنين لتنمية المجتمعات وتعزيز الآفاق الأوروبية أمام بلدان الشراكة الشرقية

لقي بافل أدموفيتش, عمدة مدنية غدانسك, إحدى أهم المدن البولندية, حتفه الشهر الماضي في ظروف مريعة. مثل هذا الخبر, لكل واحد في ألدا, صدمة هائلة. كما نود التذكير أنه بفضل الروح التي مكنتنا من ربط العلاقة بيننا, نحن نرغب فعلا في مواصلة التراث الذي خلفه بافل أدموفيتش والـتأكيد على أن كل العمل الذي بدأناه معا سيتواصل, بل وبأكثر قوة وفعالية.

إن النجاح الذي حققته مدينة غدانسك يعد مثلا يحتذى به في مواصلة العمل والالتزام بمبادئ الديمقراطية المحلية كوسيلة ناجعة وناجحة في إدراك التنمية المحلية. وبالتالي, ستستغل ألدا هذه التجربة الناجحة لتعزيز  قدراتها وبذل قصارى جهدها, لتقديم الحجج الدامغة والتأكيد بكل وضوح, أن عميلة تعبئة المواطنين, على المستوى المحلي, وتأمين مشاركتهم في مسار أخذ القرار هي الأداة الفاعلة والحقيقية لتمكين المجتمع المحلي من تحقيق كافة أهداف التنمية الاقتصادية والاجتماعية. لقد عملنا جنبا إلى جنب, مع مدينة غدانسك, على تنظيم دورات حول ممارسة المواطن, الشيء الذي مكننا من تحديد الطرق التي يتعين اتباعها لتمكين المجتمع من تحقيق مزيد التقدم والازدهار. لقد شاركت مدينة غدانسك في العديد من المشاريع التي صممتها ألدا لتحقيق التنمية المستدامة والشاملة في المناطق المحيطة بالعاصمة غدانسك (على غرار مشروع ميننغ – (ИМЕЯ В ВИДУ), مع التأكيد على نيتنا في مواصلة هذه التجربة.

بمناسبة الانتخابات التشريعية الأوروبية المرتقبة, تنوي ألدا البقاء قريبا من أعضائها, على غرار مدينة غدانسك, لدعم حملة واسعة حول تعزيز التوعية بخصوص التحديات الممكنة أثناء هذا الحدث الأوروبي. كما يجب أخذ كافة الاجراءات الضرورية لتعزيز التوجهات الأوروبية في أوروبا الوسطى, وبالتالي, العمل على إنجاح المشروع الأوروبي برمته. لا يجب التقليل أبدا من أهمية القيمة المضافة التي تقدمها بولندا لفائدة أوروبا – لذا يتعين علينا العمل معا لتعزيز مساهمة المواطن البولندي ودعم مشاركته في هذا المشروع.

يعتبر بافل أدموفيتش هو المؤسس, إلى جانب مدينة ماربول, التي تقع في شرق أزكرانيا, لوكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بمارلبول. نحن ملتزمون إلى أبعد حد بمواصلة هذا الجهد والحرص على أن يبقى صوته مسموعا يشكل عال وواضح من خلال العمل الذي نقوم به: “بما أن فضل أوروبا علينا لا يقدر بثمن, يتعين علينا الآن تقاسم كل ما تلقيناه مع الآخرين”. تسعى وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بمارلبول, بكل ما أوتيت من قوة, إلى تعزيز مشاركة المواطنين ودعم الحوكمة المحلية بمنطقة وعرة وخطيرة في أوكرانيا, البلد المتاخم لمنطقة دونباس. كما ننوي تعزيز منظومة الشراكة التي تربطنا بمدينة غدانسك وتمتينها. وستتواصل الجهود حثيثة للحفاظ على العمل القائم مع كورليب (CORLEAP) للجنة المناطق, التي كان بافل أدموفيتش عضوا فيها.

بكل الطرق, سوف تبقى, صديقنا الحميم والحكيم, الذي كنا دائما نستنير بأفكاره ونصائحه, سوف تبقى بكل الطرق جزءا لا يتجزأ من ألدا. نحن واعون بمسؤوليتنا التي تدعونا لتقديم الأفضل والمزيد, مع الإبقاء على ذكراه وروحه بيننا, وذلك لرؤاه الرائدة وعمله الدؤوب الذي كان يحرص دائما على تقاسمه معنا بكل سخاء وعفوية.

С духом, который выстроил наши отношения, мы хотели бы продолжить наследие Адамовича и сделать так, чтобы все, что мы начали вместе, продолжалось, укреплялось и расширялось.

Успех города Гданьска является примером постоянной приверженности местной демократии как средству местного развития. Таким образом, ALDA будет использовать этот опыт и активизировать свои усилия, чтобы наглядно продемонстрировать на убедительном примере, что мобилизация граждан на местном уровне и их участие в процессе принятия решений является реальным инструментом социально-экономического развития страны, сообщества. Мы работали вместе с городом Гданьском над практиками групп граждан, которые определили пути, по которым нужно развиваться обществу. Гданьск участвовал в нескольких проектах, разработанных ALDA для устойчивого и всестороннего развития в столичных районах Гданьска (напр. ИМЕЯ В ВИДУ), и эта деятельность продолжится.

Что касается предстоящих выборов в Европейский парламент, ALDA будет рядом со своими членами, одним из которых является и город Гданьск, чтобы поддержать широкую кампанию по повышению осведомленности о предстоящих проблемах. Европейские ориентации Центральной Европы должны быть усилены, а вместе с этим и весь европейский проект. Не следует недооценивать значимость Польши в Европе – мы должны работать вместе для расширения вовлечения польских граждан.

Павел Адамович был инициатором, вместе с г. Мариуполем на востоке Украины, создания Агентства местной демократии Мариуполя. Мы твердо намерены и впредь слышать его голос громко и четко в нашей работе: «Европа дала нам так много, что мы должны быть привержены тому, чтобы делиться с другими всем, что мы получили». LDA Мариуполь активно содействует участию граждан и местному самоуправлению в проблемном городе Украины, на границе с районом Донбасса. Партнерство с Гданьском будет продолжаться и расширяться. Работа с проектом CORLEAP от Комитета Регионов, членом которого был Адамович, также будет продолжаться.

Во многом наш друг и наставник будет всегда частью ALDA. Мы чувствуем ответственность за наши поступки, за их улучшение, вспоминая его за все то, что он сделал для нашего общего видения.


Zaostavština Pavela Adamovica u Gdanjsku, ALDA-i i celoj Evropi

Podrška lokalnoj demokratiji i učešću građana u razvoju zajednica, kao i pružanje evropskih perspektiva za budućnost zemalјa Istočnog partnerstva

Prošlog meseca, Pavel Adamovic, gradonačelnik Gdanjska – jedan od glavnih gradova u Polјskoj – izgubio je život pod tragičnim okolnostima. Za sve u ALDA-i, ovo je bila šokantna vest. U duhu našeg odnosa, želeli bismo da nastavimo nasleđe Adamovica, i da se pobrinemo da da sve ono što smo započeli zajedno nastavimo još jače i bolje.

Uspeh grada Gdanjska je primer kontinuirane posvećenosti lokalnoj demokratiji kao sredstvu za lokalni razvoj. ALDA će stoga iskoristiti ovo iskustvo i dodatno ojačati svoje napore kako bi pojasnili, uz snažan primer, da je mobilizacija građana na lokalnom nivou i njihovo učešće u procesu donošenja odluka pravi alat za društveni i ekonomski razvoj zajednice. Radili smo zajedno sa gradom Gdanjskom na skupovima građana, koji su identifikovali puteve koje treba pratiti kako bi društvo raslo i razvijalo se. Gdanjsk je bio uklјučen u nekoliko projekata koje je ALDA osmislila za održivi i inkluzivni razvoj u gradskim područjima Gdanjska (kao što je projekat “MEANING”), i ta saradnja će se nastaviti.

Što se tiče predstojećih izbora za Evropski parlament, ALDA će biti uz svoje članice, kao i grad Gdanjsk, kako bi podržali kampanju zagovaranja o izazovima koji se pojavlјuju. Evropska orijentacija centralne Evrope treba da ojača, a time i čitav evropski projekat. Dodata vrednost Polјske u Evropi nikada ne bi trebalo da se potcenjuje – moramo da radimo zajedno kako bismo pobolјšali učešće i uklјučenost polјskih građana.

Pavel Adamovic je bio inicijator, zajedno sa gradom Marijupoljem u Istočnoj Ukrajini, Agencije lokalne demokratije Marijupolj. Snažno smo posvećeni nastojanju da nastavimo da čujemo njegov glas glasno i jasno u našem daljem radu: „Evropa nam je dala toliko mnogo, da bismo sada trebali biti posvećeni delјenju sa drugima svega što smo dobili“. LDA Marijupolj koja se nalazi u oblasti Ukrajine sa komplikovanom situacijom, na granici sa područjem Donbasa, aktivna je u promovisanju učešća građana i lokalne uprave. Partnerstvo sa Gdanjskom će se nastaviti i povećavati i ubuduće. Rad sa CORLEAP-om Komiteta regiona, čiji je Adamovic bio član, takođe će se nastaviti i biti osnaženo.

Naš prijatelј i mentor će, na mnogo načina, i dalje biti deo ALDA-e. Osećamo odgovornost da činimo bolјe i više, prisećajući se svega što je učinio za našu zajedničku viziju i napore.

تراث بافل أدموفيتش بغدانسك, في كل من ألدا و أوروبا الموسعة

دعم الديمقراطية المحلية ومشاركة المواطنين لتنمية المجتمعات وتعزيز الآفاق الأوروبية أمام بلدان الشراكة الشرقية

لقي بافل أدموفيتش, عمدة مدنية غدانسك, إحدى أهم المدن البولندية, حتفه الشهر الماضي في ظروف مريعة. مثل هذا الخبر, لكل واحد في ألدا, صدمة هائلة. كما نود التذكير أنه بفضل الروح التي مكنتنا من ربط العلاقة بيننا, نحن نرغب فعلا في مواصلة التراث الذي خلفه بافل أدموفيتش والـتأكيد على أن كل العمل الذي بدأناه معا سيتواصل, بل وبأكثر قوة وفعالية.

إن النجاح الذي حققته مدينة غدانسك يعد مثلا يحتذى به في مواصلة العمل والالتزام بمبادئ الديمقراطية المحلية كوسيلة ناجعة وناجحة في إدراك التنمية المحلية. وبالتالي, ستستغل ألدا هذه التجربة الناجحة لتعزيز  قدراتها وبذل قصارى جهدها, لتقديم الحجج الدامغة والتأكيد بكل وضوح, أن عميلة تعبئة المواطنين, على المستوى المحلي, وتأمين مشاركتهم في مسار أخذ القرار هي الأداة الفاعلة والحقيقية لتمكين المجتمع المحلي من تحقيق كافة أهداف التنمية الاقتصادية والاجتماعية. لقد عملنا جنبا إلى جنب, مع مدينة غدانسك, على تنظيم دورات حول ممارسة المواطن, الشيء الذي مكننا من تحديد الطرق التي يتعين اتباعها لتمكين المجتمع من تحقيق مزيد التقدم والازدهار. لقد شاركت مدينة غدانسك في العديد من المشاريع التي صممتها ألدا لتحقيق التنمية المستدامة والشاملة في المناطق المحيطة بالعاصمة غدانسك (على غرار مشروع ميننغ – (ИМЕЯ В ВИДУ), مع التأكيد على نيتنا في مواصلة هذه التجربة.

بمناسبة الانتخابات التشريعية الأوروبية المرتقبة, تنوي ألدا البقاء قريبا من أعضائها, على غرار مدينة غدانسك, لدعم حملة واسعة حول تعزيز التوعية بخصوص التحديات الممكنة أثناء هذا الحدث الأوروبي. كما يجب أخذ كافة الاجراءات الضرورية لتعزيز التوجهات الأوروبية في أوروبا الوسطى, وبالتالي, العمل على إنجاح المشروع الأوروبي برمته. لا يجب التقليل أبدا من أهمية القيمة المضافة التي تقدمها بولندا لفائدة أوروبا – لذا يتعين علينا العمل معا لتعزيز مساهمة المواطن البولندي ودعم مشاركته في هذا المشروع.

يعتبر بافل أدموفيتش هو المؤسس, إلى جانب مدينة ماربول, التي تقع في شرق أزكرانيا, لوكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بمارلبول. نحن ملتزمون إلى أبعد حد بمواصلة هذا الجهد والحرص على أن يبقى صوته مسموعا يشكل عال وواضح من خلال العمل الذي نقوم به: “بما أن فضل أوروبا علينا لا يقدر بثمن, يتعين علينا الآن تقاسم كل ما تلقيناه مع الآخرين”. تسعى وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بمارلبول, بكل ما أوتيت من قوة, إلى تعزيز مشاركة المواطنين ودعم الحوكمة المحلية بمنطقة وعرة وخطيرة في أوكرانيا, البلد المتاخم لمنطقة دونباس. كما ننوي تعزيز منظومة الشراكة التي تربطنا بمدينة غدانسك وتمتينها. وستتواصل الجهود حثيثة للحفاظ على العمل القائم مع كورليب (CORLEAP) للجنة المناطق, التي كان بافل أدموفيتش عضوا فيها.

بكل الطرق, سوف تبقى, صديقنا الحميم والحكيم, الذي كنا دائما نستنير بأفكاره ونصائحه, سوف تبقى بكل الطرق جزءا لا يتجزأ من ألدا. نحن واعون بمسؤوليتنا التي تدعونا لتقديم الأفضل والمزيد, مع الإبقاء على ذكراه وروحه بيننا, وذلك لرؤاه الرائدة وعمله الدؤوب الذي كان يحرص دائما على تقاسمه معنا بكل سخاء وعفوية.

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 веб-сайт
