Hybrid Stakeholder Consultation on
Ecological transition - Which balance between social acceptability and environmental imperatives to build resilient communities from the point of view of cities and regions?
22 March 2022, 10:00 – 12:00 in JDE 51
We are already feeling the effects of climate change and, if left unchecked, these effects can lead to compound risks that Europe is ill prepared to cope with. Adapting and mitigating climate change, fostering biodiversity, ensuring territorial resilience to natural disasters, promoting healthy environments and a better quality of life are different aspects of a single priority, which is building a more resilient Europe.
Climate risks are context related and climate action calls for tailored solutions. Local and regional authorities know best the local and regional challenges therefore they should be equipped with the instruments to pursue the solutions that best fit the local scenario. A resilient community is able to resist, absorb and recover from the effects of climate risks and other disruptions. Achieving resilience means more than just mitigating negative effects, it means developing an atmosphere where both society and economy can prosper.
