To draw up the Climate Plan 2018-2030 and define the actions that need to be carried out, the current situation in the city was analysed by sector and environmental vectors:
Mobility planning and management in Barcelona is a strategic area for reducing greenhouse gases and, at the same time, improving air quality and, therefore, the health of city residents.
The impact of climate change on green spaces and biodiversity is not very well known, but it is clear that measures need to be stepped up to enable their adaptation.
Barcelona is committed to transitioning from the current fossil fuel energy model to a model based mainly on clean energy sources which take into account distributed generation.
Barcelona is moving towards a city model centred on citizens.
It includes an integrated, cross-cutting concept of the entire water cycle, covering all the municipal agents, which serves as the basis for analysing the current situation and defining the actions that need to be implemented to tackle climate change.
Climate change has an impact on basic health requirements: clean air, availability of drinking water, sufficient food and safe, comfortable housing.
The effects of climate change can lead to changes in consumption patterns and in the availability of energy, water and food resources.
Climate change is a global challenge that requires local action. To deal with it, there needs to be a paradigm shift in city governance.
Food security will most probably be affected by climate change, which means the availability of food (production and sale), the stability of food supplies and access to and use of food products.
