Currently, available evidence suggests that a temperature increase of 2ºC during the first half of this century is practically inevitable, with its consequent additional climatic impacts (Stern, 2007). In this sense, during this century, society must recognize the importance of adapting to new climatic conditions in order to reduce climatic impacts and at the same time seek to move towards a path of sustainable development.
To date, substantial international efforts are being made in the fight against climate change through mitigation actions, that is, reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions into the atmosphere and promoting their secuestration. Despite this, the ultimate goal of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the stabilization of GHG atmospheric concentrations, is far from being achieved and there is a very broad scientific consensus on future climate change scenarios for the next decades. Therefore, climate change adaptation actions are considered absolutely necessary and complementary to mitigation actions.
In ALLCOT we work on the following objectives in terms of adaptation to climate change:
- Develop a strategy that makes it sustainable at the pace of economic growth and weigh an appropriate strategy on the use of renewable and non-renewable natural resources.
- Disconnect from the trajectory of entry to energy consumption and other inputs.
- Reduce social vulnerability.
- Develop specific sectoral measures for adaptation to climate change.
We work on projects financed with multilateral funds that increase the current and future resilience of the areas of influence of the projects in which we work against the adverse impacts associated with climate.
In ALLCOT we are working in the sustainable construction sector defining a series of measures aimed at adapting the population and its infrastructure to the extreme events that occur as a result of the current climate crisis. The ultimate goal is to reduce vulnerability and risk in the face of climate change through modular construction based on recycled materials.”
In ALLCOT we are committed to adapting to climate change as a fundamental measure to reduce vulnerability by promoting sustainable development. In adaptation initiatives, we try to consider not only how to reduce vulnerability to negative impacts, but also how to benefit from positive ones. It is about improving the resilience of both ecosystems and the most vulnerable communities.
