Project description

The project is based on the assumption that climate change will have an increasing influence on the development of the metropolitan region of Santiago and its population in the future. Due to the extremely high concentration of economic potential and governmental systems, the high demand for raw materials as well as current ecological and social vulnerabilities, the introduction of adaptation measures will be required. Therefore, the aim of the project is the development of climate adaptation strategies for the metropolitan region of Santiago de Chile in the key areas energy, water and land use, considering the major vulnerabilities. Analyses of both the decisive impacts of climate change with an emphasis on the urban level as well as the resulting consequences and effects shall be conducted. This will be done through explorative scenarios.

In the context of a comprehensive participation process (roundtable on climate adaptation), representatives of responsible regional and national administrations and stakeholders will discuss, evaluate and prioritise the proposed strategies for climate adaptation and possibly plan their implementation. By involving decision makers of other cities in Latin America, these activities shall be integrated into a regional learning network. The project contributes to the exchange and discussion of experiences of the participating cities as well as to the development of competences and capacities of the relevant partners, the members of the roundtable and the learning network. At the same time, it wants to help raise the population's awareness of climate change and adaptation measures and contribute to minimise the risks for vulnerable population groups in particular.

ITAS is responsible for the analyses of both the water and the energy sector and will contribute to the development and implementation of measures and to the regional learning network Latin America. Coordinator of the project is the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ).
