Programme:

The elaboration of this plan is very important for the identification and prioritization of measures and investments that minimize the vulnerability of the Municipality and water resources to climate changes. This plan has an important role to the Municipal Strategy for the Climate Change Adaptation and for other municipal and intermunicipal strategies. It is also fundamental to get balance between "green" solutions (provided by nature) and "grey" solutions, as well as in engagement of population in the protection of this resources.

Nature Based Solutions (NBS) have as main objective the restoration of ecosystems, giving them the capacity for self-sustainability through natural processes. These interventions have an important role in the territory protection, with the objective of soil protection from erosion, contributing to the improvement of the landscape and the complexity, connectivity and biopotential of ecosystems.
