GBG_AS2C journal: Climate shelters in Barcelona
Short description
In this journal, UIA Expert Constantinos Cartalis provides a contextualization of the Climate Shelters project within the policy context of the European Union, national and regional levels, so as to assess its compliance to international and other commitments as well as to recognize its links with running policies of the City Council of Barcelona for climate change adaptation.

The Journal is mostly devoted to the activities of the project, with the intention of presenting the processes that led to their implementation, as well as to describe the tools and methods used (or to be used) to overcome past, present and future challenges. Finally, a number of case studies and lessons learned are provided with the intention to exemplify the project and reveal its strong points and replication potential.
