Climate

Climate change is a serious global challenge, which will significantly influence the life of all citizens in European cities. In Europe, 69% of all greenhouse gas emissions is generated in urban areas, and the role that cities and towns play in the context of climate change is undeniable. Within the framework of the Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, a Climate-friendly Cities Handbook has been compiled for city governments and practitioners on the challenges, tasks and possibilities of European cities related to climate change. It also includes examples of best practices from all over Europe. All in all, 162 good practices from 93 European cities applied for the call of the Hungarian EU Presidency, from which 78 practices of 58 cities and 24 countries have been published in the handbook. Adapting an integrated approach, the volume covers nearly all areas of city development and management.

First launch Hungarian EU presidency handbook on climate-friendly cities

In an age where global challenges will significantly influence the life of each city, the Hungarian EU Presidency pays special attention to sustainable development of cities and towns. The Presidency aims to contribute to European urban policy thinking by focusing on climate change, a major challenge that our cities face. The ‘CLIMATE-FRIENDLY CITIES, A Handbook on the Tasks and Possibilities of European Cities in Relation to Climate Change’ supports European cities and towns in their combat against climate change by widening the European knowledge base.
