National Adaptation Strategy for Belgium published

In December 2010 the National Climate Commission has published the "Belgian National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy".

"In order to be prepared for the coming changes, the National Climate Commission has instructed members of the federal and regional (Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels) governments to prepare this adaptation strategy. [...] We believe that following the strategies explained in this document, coupled with the efforts done in mitigating the climate change, gives Belgium the best chances in minimizing the impacts of the climate change." (see: Foreword of the National Climate Commission)

Several chapters refer to the Future Cities project as one of various successful international cooperations actually running.
