The commission is part of the pilot action identified and approved by the Territorial Bureau for Climate Change Adaptation (MeTACC) of the RB Montseny on January 23, 2019, with the title: “Characterization and Definition of Improvements Environmental in All Sectors and Conducting a Pilot Test ”.
After conducting a Vulnerability Study of the Montseny territory and a Climate Change Adaptation Plan, the most urgent actions to be taken were evaluated. One of them is the subject of the Cíclica assignment: the proposal for improvements to the process of assessing the adaptation to climate change of companies in the agricultural and tourist sector of the Montseny Biosphere Reserve.
Portar a terme una avaluació específica sobre l’adaptació al canvi climàtic de diversos establiments i instal·lacions del sector agrari i turístic de la R.B. del Montseny, partint d’un procés de cultura energètica que permeti fer aflorar la resiliència local de les iniciatives ja existents per a la seva posada en comú. A partir d’aquí, poder establir sinergies i aprenentatges mutus enriquits conjuntament amb inputs externs a través del camí d’adaptació al canvi climàtic.
The methodological proposal works from the understanding of social metabolism for its transformation to circular metabolism as a driver of the transformation of the productive system towards adaptation to climate change. Expertise in the fields of architecture, town planning and land planning allows us to broaden our understanding of this metabolic understanding from trans-scalarity and its impact over time.
The proposal incorporates cooperation as a backbone to ensure real roots in the local reality of the tourism and agricultural sector. This process must allow: on the one hand, the appropriation of the process by local companies in the sector, which will facilitate their awareness and empowerment, and on the other hand, strengthen existing structures such as the economy network local social and organic production and consumption (Slow Food network in the Vallès Oriental). It proposes a work by territorial sectors and types of agents so that affinity sessions are more operative when it comes to generating proximity or thematic synergies.
All actions incorporate the social perspective of interculturality and gender at a transversal level. At the same time, they are also valued based on the environmental improvements that they generate in the direct environment of the facilities, as well as other improvements on a trans-scale level, such as the promotion of greater biodiversity (favoring local flora and fauna, combating pests). ..), especially fostering a diverse landscape such as that of the agroforestry mosaic typical of the Vallès Oriental, characterized by its potential for resilience in the face of disturbances such as pests, fires and floods.
It proposes the elaboration of a joint methodology of evaluation for the adaptation to the climatic change by companies object of the commission. In this sense the proposal:
The evaluation focuses on identifying risks of environmental perturbations of climatic origin, both current and future, as well as identifying actions to minimize or mitigate these risks. The actions are grouped in relation to the metabolic transformation of the vectors defined in the methodology and their interrelations, as well as the impact they have on environmental quality both inside the facilities and in the outdoor spaces, following the following indicators:
