Climate Change Website

The main purpose of the project was to support the expansion of the database included in the web site www.planningclimatechange.org to not just European experiences and key studies. The web site opened by the University IUAV of Venice with the support of the European Union and a network of European Unibersities is a communication instrument for students and policy makers on climate planning research and related teaching activities. The genaral aim of this web site is to open a public debate on the roles of local governments in this process of climate change mitigation and adaptation, to communicate the essential role they play to support the realisation of national and international climate targets, and to illustrate the impact they can have–at multiple levels– through exemplary case studies.
