UNESCO Radom City Demosite
Adaptation to climate change through sustainable management of water of the urban area in Radom City, LIFE14 CCA/PL/000101, 2015-2022 (https://www.life.radom.pl/pl/)
The investments in the city of Radom implemented as part of the LIFERADOMKLIMA-PL project have been reported as model ecohydrological solutions for rainwater management in cities. The Scientific Advisory Committee of UNESCO’s Ecohydrology Programme (EH-SAC), composed of internationally well- known scientists from all over the world, had a meeting on 14 and 15 December 2022 at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France to evaluate all applications for new Ecohydrology Demonstration Sites submitted to UNESCO-IHP. The LIFERADOMKLIMA-PL proposal was very well received by the EH-SAC because it demonstrates a solid understanding of ecohydrology techniques as well as provides evidence on how the ecohydrology approach will be demonstrated to public. In this context, the EH-SAC has evaluated the aforementioned proposal and has confirmed that it satisfactorily meets the requirements for approval. The UNESCO informed the 29 Dec 2022 that “Radom City” in Poland is accepted for inclusion in the Global Network of UNESCO Ecohydrology Demonstration Sites. The same the LIFERADOMKLIMA-PL project “Adaptation to climate change through sustainable management of water of the urban area in Radom City (Poland)” and Radom city become a part of the Global Network of Ecohydrology Demonstration Sites of UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Hydrological Programme (UNESCO-IHP) initiated since 2010.
