Today, 54% of the world’s population lives in cities, a proportion that is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. These cities are constantly facing different impacts of climate change.

Last October, several RESCCUE representatives attended the Spanish Water Engineering Conference (JIA) in Toledo, Spain.

The Portuguese RESCCUE partners have presented RESCCUE project at several events in Portugal during the last month, such as Caminho da Innovaçao 19’ Expo or a conference about sustainability.

The RESCCUE consortium, made up by more than 40 members from different partners, gathered in Lisbon (Portugal) to hold the 8th Project Committee Meeting. This two-day encounter was aimed at updating the project progress, from technical to strategic issues, as well as planning the last tasks of the project, which will end next year.

RESCCUE will organise a scientific conference that will bring together different actors from academia, administrations, businesses and local communities to discuss multiple aspects of urban resilience and climate change. Abstract submission will open next Monday 28th October. Registration will open soon.
