Experience in Múrcia

In 2015, Factor Co2 gave beginning to a project in the city of Múrcia, in Spain, to analyze climatic projections it city and to evaluate the vulnerability of the region the possible changes in the climate.

On the basis of given meteorological of Múrcia in the different stations of the year, specific climatic projections for the region come being developed. The idea is that the interpretation of the gotten information allows an analysis of risk for the climate in the city.

The data make possible the identification of the sector-key in the city that could propitiate the occurrence of climatic changes. In such a way, for one better adoption of writs of prevention, the results gotten for each one of these sectors later will be contrasted with different areas, in some sessions of work in the city.
