New EEA report published

A new European Environment Agency (EEA) report released today highlights the opportunities open to municipalities to share best practices and how they can support projects like green roofs or expanding city parks to help alleviate the negative effects of climate change.

The EEA report “Financing urban adaptation to climate change" takes a closer look at innovative funding options now being used, such as green bonds and crowdfunding, alongside traditional funding channels. The report includes case studies that analyse how 11 cities across Europe are developing, funding and implementing urban adaptation measures. The case studies outline various projects that will help cities better protect themselves from the damage caused by extreme weather events. The publication is intended to serve as a resource for adaptation financing providers and project developers from international, national or regional public bodies and private institutions. Cities are also organising themselves to share best practices and promote environmental cooperation through the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy and other similar organisations.

The 11 case studies involve the following cities: Amsterdam, Bilbao, Bologna, Bratislava, Copenhagen, Ghent, Hamburg, Lisbon, Malmö, Paris, and Smolyan.  For more information, see here: http://www.eea.europa.eu/highlights/cities-taking-action-learning-from?utm_source=EEASubscriptions&utm_medium=RSSFeeds&utm_campaign=Generic
