Local Mitigation and Adaptation to Climate Change - A Catalogue of Proposals
More and more scientific evidence is showing us that, day by day, we are heading towards a scenario in which climate change is a reality, with effects at both the local and global levels, posing serious threats to natural, economic and social systems.
This problem is closely linked to an energy consumption model that, though crucial to overcoming the most critical stages in human development, is clearly unsustainable, as it entails the depletion of non-renewable resources and the emission of gases that can change climate vectors. Governments at all levels have reacted, and have already adopted a series of
commitments aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, largely by increasing energy efficiency and making more extensive use of alternative energy sources.
