Networking: LIFE WATER COOL
The LIFE WATERCOOL project aims to develop and test innovative solutions to cope with high temperatures, both outdoors and indoors, and with temporary water runoff and drought situations in an urban environment subject to climate change. The urban water network will act as the basic structure for the development of urban green solutions and cooling measures to adapt to the effects of climate change, maximizing the sustainability of the city and the well-being of citizens.
The specific objectives of LIFE WATERCOOL include to: 1) develop a network-based water management system to mitigate the impact of extreme water-related effects linked to climate change; 2) improve the urban climate in the demonstration area (reducing the temperature by 3-5 ° C and generating 28 ° C of cold air) by implementing measures to adapt to climate change in urban spaces; 3) develop new tools for the collaborative management of public and private organizations; 4) involve new cities and citizens in replication to increase the level of commitment and participation in the sustainable management of resources; and 5) create a framework that integrates all stakeholders so that problems can be resolved actively and collaboratively.
The collaboration between the LIFE MIDMACC and LIFE WATER COOL projects is based on the fact that both projects complement each other between the rural world and the urban world and the links between them. LIFE WATER COOL may include news and results from LIFE MIDMACC in the citizen application they are developing.
