Unbearable heat in the city... Linz is one of the examples where the population is suffering extremely from heat exposure. Due to the common urban structures and large-scale climate change impacts, the Austrian City is an ideal demo case for many other cities in Central Europe. Linz can serve as a base for development of operating procedures and climate services
The problems of smartphone manufacturing and use are numerous: growing number of devices, production of metals is harmful to health and the environment, production takes place under dubious working conditions, manufacturing consumes a lot of energy, product cycles are getting shorter, devices are expensive to repair. A German company wants to remedy the situation.
This year on ECCA, CLARITY presented a new methodology and tools to support cities with their adaption strategies for climate change. The fourth European Climate Change Adaptation Conference (ECCA) brought together thousands of scientists, experts and urban planners to discuss ways of adapting.
Extreme weather conditions occur more frequently. Not only metropoles like Los Angeles, Basel, London or Vancouver, but also different German cities already have claimed the state of "Climate Emergency". Extreme storms, heat waves, floods and droughts occur more frequently, agriculture is affected by climate change.
According to a new IPBES report, species extinction is taking place at an alarming rate. The greatest impact is due to changes in the use of land and sea, followed by direct exploitation of living organisms, climate change, pollution and invasive immigrant species. The importance of climate change will increase in the coming decades, that's why we have to act
For ECCA, the 4th European Climate Change Adaptation conference in Lisbon, we already announced the summaries of our sessions. Now you can find the exact times and the whole program, too.
