Integration of Adaptation and Mitigation in the Field of Construction

In Europe, optimisation of the energy consumption of buildings offers the largest potential for long-term CO2 reduction strategies. Buildings are also important for adaptation measures against climate extremes such as floods, storms and overheating in summer. Risk prevention for buildings and cooling comfort during heatwaves are two areas in which synergy effects for climate change mitigation can be achieved.
