Case Description

All territories are mainly from the Mediterranean biogeographical region characterised by dramatic and increasing heatwaves and droughts events, impacts and damages to agricultural economies, forest fires, and lack of water availability that represent a specificity of these contexts. At the city level, urban heat islands generate a loss in well-being conditions and health problems to the high percentage of elder populations, another specific feature of these areas. The main barriers to financing resilience seem linked not to scarce resources availability but more to limited dimensions of internal structures and a small number of public servants skilled in funding opportunities dedicated to catching financial resources and implementing and multiplying funded actions. The Southern cluster includes 3 italian case studies, 3 spanish and 3 portuguese. The Southern leader case is Brescia municipality in Italy.
