In February 2020, the work entitled “Assessment of Urban Thermal Vulnerability of Public Transport Stops” was completed, which was prepared by ECOTEN urban comfort as an accompanying material for the map of Urban Thermal Vulnerability and related maps of Prague. The work was prepared for the needs of preparation of measures to reduce the thermal vulnerability of public transport stops in the Capital City of Prague. The final report begins with a brief presentation of extreme events of air temperatures and their impacts on urban areas, then deals with the concept of vulnerability to the impacts of climate change in terms of: exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity. The method of calculating vulnerability to climate change is based on the proposal of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Vulnerability and its components were indexed by normalization between 0 and 1 (from lowest vulnerability to highest).

Until March 31, everyone can nominate a project to adapt the city to climate change in the second year of the Adapterra Awards. The competition highlights successful measures in response to the consequences of climate change in the city, such as overheating, lack of greenery or lightning. This year, Prague has a new category in the competition for measures implemented on its territory. Projects can be nominated in four areas: open landscape, built-up areas, work environment and home. Inspirational, already implemented, climate change adaptation measures can be entered into the competition by an individual, organization or city district either as an owner, investor, implementer or designer via the competition website


On June 17, 2019, the City Council announced the climate commitment of Prague.

Prague’s climate commitment is to adopt a target to reduce CO emissions in the capital by at least 45% by 2030 (compared to 2010) and to achieve zero CO 2 emissions by 2050 at the latest.
A set of concrete steps to meet the climate commitment


The City of Prague joined the international project DELIVER on the basis of the Memorandum approved by  RHMP Resolution No. 2831 of 16 December 2019. The DELIVER project (DEVelope resilient, low-carbon and more LIVablE urban Residential area) is funded by the European Commission, the financial instrument for the environment of the LIFE Program, programming period 2014-2020, established by Regulation (EC) No. 1293/ 2013 of 11 December 2013 establishing the Environment and Climate Program (LIFE) and repealing Regulation (EC) No 614/2007, from the sub-program “Climate Protection”, under the LIFE17 project CCA / SK / 000126 – LIFE DELIVER. Under this memorandum, the city promised to cooperate in order to create and test a unique CRELOCAF (Climate Resilient Low Carbon Factor) tool for monitoring, evaluation, management and presentation of information on adaptation and mitigation activities of the participating cities. The project aims to create and test a tool called “KLIMSKEN”, which will allow a comprehensive assessment of the city, urban areas and buildings in terms of climate change and implemented adaptations and mitigations. Currently, data are being collected for 2018, which the project team has identified as the starting point to which the impacts of adaptation and mitigation will begin in the capital. the city of Prague in the future.
