The City of Águilas hosted this week a work meeting of the Life Adaptate Program, co-financed by the European Fund, which aims to adapt to climate change.
Although the main action of the program is the creation of a large forest park that is already being worked on, this pilot action is complemented by the City Council's commitment to carry out the measures of the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, specifically the preparation and design of an Action Plan for Climate and Sustainable Energy (PACES) that addresses both mitigation and climate adaptation before 2030.
The main objective of Life Adaptate is to contribute to the improvement of policies and legislation related to mitigation and adaptation to climate change in the European Union.
In particular, the process of design and implementation of local adaptation policies and the design of concrete actions in each municipality, taking into account the challenges that arise in each municipality.
Specifically, and according to the mayor of Environmental Education, Ginés Desiderio Navarro, the technical table held this week "has served to study different measures that allow the design of a practical methodology for adaptation to climate change for the municipality of Águilas."
Also, the mayor has advanced that "after the conclusion of this table a new workshop will be convened in which representatives of civil society, associative fabric and political groups with municipal representation will be present in order to analyze the proposals developed by municipal technicians" .
