Progress towards CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION is made in Grand Lyon

Grand Lyon

The second workshop of the Climate Metropole+ initiative "Climate Change Adaptation - Strategies, Actions and Challenges" was held in Lyon on 8-9 February 2016. The first day included presentations on Lyon’s climate and energy plan, the climate change adaptation plan, the local climate observatory and the Tree Charter. In the afternoon, the field trip involved three visits: a visit to the Garibaldi road, as an example of road requalification where green and blue elements were combined; the second visit to the park Kaplan and the water management department which focused on the use of rainwater and the strategy of “permeable city” and finally, the visit to the local information centre of the Confluence district (House of The Confluence) where the urban project was explained and discussed.

The second day focused on the preliminary analysis of the No Regrets Charter and the climate change adaptation actions undertaken by Berlin, Barcelona Metropolitan Area, Grand Lyon and Liverpool City Region. A brief presentation was given of other on-going initiatives at global and EU level, particularly, the new Integrated Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy.
