Urban adaptation in two Hungarian municipalities

OrientGate Pilot Study 6

November 2014 | Print | Leaflet

Under the OrientGate project's Thematic Centre on Urban Adaptation and Health, a pilot study was carried out in two Hungarian municipalities: Veszprem and Budapest's District XIII. The study assessed climate vulnerability with a focus on the public health sector, links between identified vulnerabilities and other local challenges, and potential solutions. This leaflet outlines the goals of the study, the institutions involved and the results of the research. It also presents recommendations for improving the resilience of urban systems to the impacts of climate change. 

The OrientGate project is implemented with the contribution of the REC's Environmental Financing and Climate Change and Clean Energy Topic Areas, and is co-funded by the South East Europe Transnational Cooperation Programme.
