Our reporter travelled through whole Brazil for months, bringing stunning photos and encouraging stories: In our series about Brazilian projects we are talking about different aspects: Intense rainfalls in Bahia, permaculture and alternative housing in Ceará and sustainable vehicles in Paraná.
The CLARITY project aims to build up and service a vivid community interested in climate change adaptation. Its core feature is a new Marketplace to connect experts related to climate change. Its goal is to make predictions about possible hazards and their risks for infrastructure projects and their adaptation to climate change easier and more cost efficient.
At the Heinrich-Böll-foundation in Brussels employees don’t put a focus on Belgian national topics, but on connecting whole Europe. In an Interview director Klaus Linsenmeier explains what the foundation does in terms of sustainability and talks about the recently published “Energieatlas”.
Not only “Clarity” tries to adapt better to climate change and to create climate services to become greener and safer, also other projects do. “Climate-fit.city” is part of the H2020-programm, too. To pull together, “My Climate Service” sees its task to promote sister projects like this one. “Climate-fit.city” presented its strategy on the EU Green Week in Brussels on the 22nd of May, talking about the benefits of Urban Climate Service and its role for the society.
Green cities do better. They are healthy, with clean air, green spaces, safe drinking water, and offer a great quality of life to the people that live there. The EU is now promoting a greener lifestyle for cities via the EU Green Week 2018 from Monday 21th of May.
As a partner of MyClimateService the Austrian Central Institution for Meteorology and Geodynamics ZAMG presented the CLARITY CSIS at the European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly. The conference took place in Vienna, Austria, from 8–13 April 2018 and brought together geoscientists from all over the world.
In Norrköpping, Sweden, Clarity partners met from 10th -12th April for the 4th workshop to discuss about their projects. All scientific partners presented an overview and the status quo of their tasks.
A paper by European scientists presents a troubling picture for European climate. Since 1980 extreme weather events increased and now occur four times more often. Also the slowing down of the North Atlantic Current might bring Europe much cooler weather in the future.
The Italien city Naples has to cope with unbearable heat waves. In order to more climate adaptive planning, it needs to integrate urban regeneration and new construction processes. Here is a step-by-step methodology how CLARITY aims to realise a much "cooler" Naples.
