Climate Change

Climate change affects cities, as well as agriculture and natural areas. To date we are not able to accurately predict the transformations they will bring with them. According to the scientific community, these changes will have a strong impact on a few billion human beings and on all living species and their habitat.

The planet's climate has undergone variations throughout its history, but the increase in temperature that we have been observing for about 150 years is abnormal because it is caused by man and his actions. Human activities are in fact responsible for a growing impact on biodiversity and ecosystems, and climate change is intensifying the threats. Planning and monitoring are among the most effective tools for addressing climate change in both the natural and urban contexts.

Cities, in fact, can address some impacts of climate change through analysis and monitoring, which define urban design measures and innovative nature-based solutions, helping to reduce episodes of extreme heat, pollution, CO2 production, health problems, dispersion of power.

However, biodiversity should not be excluded: it is essential for human well-being, playing an important regulatory role and thus contributing to the mitigation and adaptation to climate change.

This is a continuous learning process, aimed at increasing the adaptive capacity of affected habitats and plant and animal species at risk.
