ReMED – Towards Climate Resilient Mediterranean Cities

Urban areas are known to be among the main contributors to climate change worldwide. At the same time, they are especially at risk from the impacts of climate change. There is a growing recognition that climate change is here for the long term, and that actions is needed, not just mitigation, but also to adapt to the impacts that we can expect to see now and in the future. Consequently, innovative responses for raising the resilience and adaptation of Mediterranean cities are needed.

Capitalising and combining the results of previous and ongoing projects (CESBA MED Sustainable MED Cities, Sustainable MED Cities , ARTACLIM and Habit.A), ReMED will develop an innovative set of affordable tools, along with an overarching decision support framework, to help cities in:

  • Assessing and understanding the level of climate risk at urban and building scale
  • Designing optimal climate adaptation measures in relation to local conditions
  • Implementing climate adaptation measures through the most suitable policy instruments
  • Monitoring and evaluating the results of adaptation measures over time.

ReMED will support a Multi-Level Governance (MLG) in climate adaptation, as recommended by the UN COP26.

The project is part of the Interreg Euro-Med programme (Euro-MED0200907), co-funded by the European Union and national authorities. ReMED is a collaborative effort of 9 European organizations from 5 countries, coordinated by the University of Malta (Malta) and partners from Ministry for Gozo (Malta), iiSBE Italia R&D (Italy), Municipality of Genova (Italy), NOA (Greece), Municipality of Vrilissia (Greece), Municipality of Crikvenica (Croatia), CIEDES Foundation (Spain), Municipality of Malaga (Spain).

Project duration: 01 January 2024 to 31 September 2026
