"Municipalities as integrators and coordinators
in adaptation to climate change"
The five prototypes were already completed in five small settlements, based on natural water retention helping them to adapt to climate change in the long term. The five short films made within the project aimed to present these.
Climate change has become one of the most important environmental issues in recent decades, but its effects on human, animal, and plant health, compared to other also important issues, have received little attention so far. Numerous international studies and publications have been prepared to assess the health risks of climate change on a global scale, so it has become increasingly justified to prepare entitled “Climate Change and Health” specifically on the situation in Hungary, summarizing international and domestic scientific results.
According to forecasts, the impact of climate change in Hungary will be above average, with the prospect of increasingly drier and unpredictable water. However, the complex project of the Dongér-Kelőér Water Association of Jászszentlászló for the retention of groundwater was not triggered by the forecasts, but by the overall concern: the water shortage in Homokhátság is huge.
