Lisbon City Council is the executive body of the municipality and its mission is to define and implement policies that promote the development of the municipality in different areas. Its attributions and legal regime are established by the Law of Local Authorities.
The CML team is responsible, within the scope of LIFE LUNGS, for ensuring the quality of the technical details of the project, coordinating the project, supervising subcontracted work and operational work, raising awareness and empowering citizens and developing communication mechanisms, dissemination and networking.
The Municipal Directorate for Environment, Green Structure, Climate and Energy (DMAEVCE) is responsible for coordinating the project, with the collaboration of other departments of the municipality.
Malaga City Council has a long experience in urban environmental issues. It was the first European city to win the United Nations Urban Best Practices award in 1998, and has also been avant-garde in the development of the New Urban Agenda 2015 developed by the Urban Environment Observatory (OMAU). OMAU is an institution belonging to AM, which manages a number of national and international projects and programmes related to sustainable urban planning, environment and climate change, such as the Action Plan for Climate and Sustainable Energy, under the framework of the Covenant of Mayors, with a target of carbon neutrality for 2050, which is about to be delivered. Málaga also belongs to Eurocities and takes part in a number of national and international networks.
Through OMAU, AM's role in LIFE LUNGS is to learn from Lisbon's successful experiences in its green infrastructure to adapt to climate change and, as a replication action, to develop an Executive Green Infrastructure Plan for the city. This plan will collect the different typologies of existing green areas and provide various suitable solutions for implementation, in a framework based on connected and georeferenced green areas.
AM will involve a technical team to accompany the CML’s work and subsequently design and later implement a technical project, which will include at least two of the actions tested and implemented in Lisbon, and also to participate in communication and networking activities.
