DEveloping resilient, low-carbon and more LIVablE urban Residential area

The main aim of the DELIVER project is to reconcile activities aimed at mitigating climate change with adaptation to its impact on urban residential area life.

Specific objectives of the project:
  • To increase the resilience of residential areas  consisting of prevailingly prefabricated buildings to climate change while reducing the value Carbon footprint (CO2 emissions) produced in Bratislava-Karlova Ves (with the emphasis on reducing the current high costs of running the buildings in the city borough (water heating, electricity, gas) and reducing the cost of their constant maintenance and partial repairs
  • Improve the preparedness of the city borough to assess climate change contribution and vulnerability to its impacts as well as to plan and implement climate-friendly activities and develop resilient, low-carbon and more liveable urban residential area
  • To point out the possibility of climate-friendly public activities in public buildings as well as in private residential buildings (via pilot design and realization in public spaces, public and private buildings with emphasis on green measures and biodiversity support)
  • Increase awareness of citizens of the city/city borough and representatives of other cities in response to climate change

Main activities:
  1. Realization of pilot in-depth reconstructions of selected public buildings in the administration of Bratislava-Karlova Ves (Primary School A. Dubcek and Kindergarten Kolískova) in order to reduce the energy intensity
  2. Implementation of practical measures in public spaces and buildings to mitigate and adapt to the negative impacts of climate change, focusing on the protection of biodiversity (planting of trees, trusses, climate ponds, green walls, building shelters for small animals, protection of sunburns, demonstration hives, ...)
  3. Creating an instrument to measure the effectiveness of individual measures
  4. Preparing a catalog of measures that can be implemented on buildings and spaces
  5. Creating a Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change in Karlova Ves
  6. Proposals for demonstration measures on residential buildings
  7. Building a Community Climate and Biodiversity Educational Center
