Solution Information

Solution Title

Enhancing climate change adaptation strategies and measures in the Metropolitan City of Milan

Solution Title (in English)


Climate change adaptation, land use, heat island effect, floods.


Europe, urban areas


LIFE METRO ADAPT aims to mainstream adaptation strategies and measures in the development of a territorial plan for CMM and in the planning and building rules of the 134 CMM municipalities. It will achieve this aim through the adoption of an innovative approach that identifies the role of intermediate governing bodies. The project also plans to promote nature-based solutions to meet a range of objectives, such as the reduction of the flooding risk and the heat-island effect, while also regenerating neglected urban spaces. The project plans moreover to enhance bottom-up initiatives and thus increase citizen awareness and engagement in issues related to climate change adaptation. The implementation of demonstration facilities will directly involve stakeholders from the building sector and engineering professionals working in water management. Furthermore, the project will develop innovative meteorological satellite data and high precision soil sealing maps, in order to produce detailed vulnerability analysis (focusing in particular on heat islands and floods). The aim is to ensure the availability of information specific to each municipality.
