Urban areas are very vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, because of the high concentration of people, infrastructure, and economic activity, but also because cities tend to exacerbate climate extremes such as heat waves and flash floods. Climate-fit.city will translate the best available scientific urban climate data into relevant information for public and private end-users operating in cities across a range of different sectors.

The demonstration will present the Urban Climate Data Platform and a selection of thematic applications for health, active mobility, emergency planning, cultural heritage, urban planning  and building energy applications.
