The consortium will work with 44 cities, whose populations are each above 100,000. These cities house around 30% of the country’s population and generate around 50% of its GDP. To safeguard the cities, the consortium will work together to identify and analyse the kinds of adaption and mitigation challenges each city may face, draft a host of plans which require local authorities to meet the challenges, indicate sources of funding and raise awareness for the need of adaptation.
Pawel Salek, Deputy Minister of Environment and the Government’s Climate Policy Representative, remarks about the contract, “Cities are particularly vulnerable to the impact of climate change. The Plans for Adaptation to Climate Change in Urban Areas aim at make cities more resilient and at adapting them to the changing environment.”
