The Bologna Local Urban Environment Adaptation Plan for a Resilient City (BLUEAP) is Bologna’s strategy to address the challenges of climate change in its city. BLUEAP requires the involvementof both public and private stakeholders, and was cofounded by the EU under the LIFE+ initiative. The BLUEAP project has been made successful through the identification of vulnerabilities
relating to climate change, building of resilient communities and raising awareness amongst its stakeholders. The City of Bologna has designed the guidelines for the adaptation plan, so that
they can be adopted by similarly sized cities and the benefits realised beyond the city itself.
