In parallel to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate climate change, cities also need to strengthen their resilience to the inevitable adverse impacts of climate change.
The impacts of climate change will affect all cities across Europe but with regional and local differences. European cities are particularly vulnerable to extreme weather events, typically severe floods, heat waves or exceptional storms. Many of them have already experienced other consequences of climate change, namely effects on health, damage to homes, power and water supply failures, disruption of transport, and increased energy use for heating or cooling, which exacerbates climate change and increases energy bills.
