"Municipalities as integrators and coordinators
in adaptation to climate change"
Droughts, floods and heatwaves – extreme hydrological events caused by climate change affect people living both in cities and in the countryside. According to forecasts, these extreme weather events are going to become more frequent, and will severely affect Hungarian communities. However, cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly solutions exist that can help protect against the effects of climate change.
The following short film was made on 15 July 2020, about the intervention area of the LIFE-MICACC project and the surrounding wildlife. The drone images show the habitat of the gray cattle and water buffaloes, the floodplain lake system and the surrounding agricultural areas from a special and unique perspective.
By not draining the falling rain, but keeping it in our home, we not only do good for our wallets, but we can also effectively protect against heat and drought. In addition, we can do a lot to preserve the natural treasure which is the basis of all life. WWF Hungary gives tips on how to keep water around our house.
