LIFE Urban Klima 2050 is considered the largest climate action project in the Basque Country for the next few years and aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% in 2030.
Urban Klima 2050 has set itself the main objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40% in 2030 and by 80% in 2050. It also proposes actions that encompass both adaptation and mitigation, to radically improve the resilience of the Basque Country to climate change.
Urban Klima 2050 will build cross-cutting actions to integrate different resilience tools in cities and towns. It will make the administration an example in the fight against climate change. It will carry out innovative actions, applicable in sectors of interest.
