The Lisbon Metropolitan Area hosted the second meeting of the PROVIDE (Paris Agreement Overshooting - Reversibility, Climate Impacts and Adaptation Needs) stakeholder network on November 6.
The session was used to present the new version of the PROVIDE Climate Risk Dashboard tool and collect contributions for its improvement.
Results and indicators of heat stress and risk associated with heat waves for the Lisbon region were presented, and solutions for adapting to heat stress and extreme heat were shared.
Organized by the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, which is a national partner in this European project, the meeting was attended by around 30 national and international participants.
The session was led by Tiago Capela Lourenço (Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon), Quentin Lejeune (Climate Analytics), Niels Souverijins (VITO), Chahan Kropf (ETH Zurich) and Sarantis Georgiou (BUUR).
About the PROVIDE project
The PROVIDE project develops support services for climate action, in the context of temporary increase trajectories for the global temperature limits established in the Paris Agreement.
You will study the Mediterranean region of the Iberian Peninsula, and in particular the Lisbon metropolitan area, along with three other territories: Fino-Scandinavia, the upper basin of the Indus River and the Bahamas.
The Lisbon Metropolitan Area and its municipalities, as a specific study territory in Climate Analytics' Climate Risk Dashboard, will be provided with updated geographical information, new data and suggestions for measures and actions to adapt to climate change.
The project began in the last quarter of 2021 and will be completed by the end of summer 2024.
