The LIFE Integrado Urban Klima 2050 project is the Basque Country's largest climate action project for the coming years. Its aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030 and 80% by 2050. It will also propose a series of actions in areas of adaptation and mitigation, with a view to in radically improving the Basque Country's resistance to climate change.
To this end, Urban Klima 2050 will build cross-cutting actions intended to integrate different instruments of resilience in cities and towns. It will make public authorities a role model in combatting climate change. It will implement innovative actions that can be applied in target sectors. It will generate knowledge that can be incorporated into decision-making processes. It will create participation processes for co-designing solutions with key agents and the general public and will empower citizens to make a lasting commitment to the environment.
Through these actions, Urban Klima 2050 will transform the Basque territory, coordinating a total of 40 climate-change adaptation projects and actions over its six-year lifespan. It will also facilitate the effective roll-out of the Basque Climate Change Strategy.
