LOCAL URBAN AGENDA as a useful tool to repeat – at city local level – the framework to face the strictly relevant issues of the urbanized system, according to the priorities identified at an European and international level.
SECAP initiative (Sustainable Energy & Climate Action Plan), intended as an Operational Plan, to enact the commitments taken on the issues of energy transition and adaptation to climate changes.
GREEN asset is qualified by climate changes – including natural risks – and urban regeneration according to natural solutions, able to improve the quality of life of citizens and to make the urban landscape more pleasant.
ROLE OF THE ADMINISTRATION
The Administration’s task is to act as a player in local regulations and, at the same time, as a change promoter towards the other governance levels, proposing improvements to the regulatory framework in order to make it more consistent with the needs of a territory that has to deal more and more quickly with the impacts of change.
Research institutions are the logical partners of the GREEN asset. Knowing the benefits that an urban environment can obtain from a proper management of its eco-systemic services and from the development of new technologies, can help to make urban areas safer, healthier and more comfortable.
