Climate resilient cities : a primer on reducing vulnerabilities to disasters - Milan, Italy : Kota berketahanan iklim : pedoman dasar pengurangan kerentanan terhadap bencana - Milan, Italia (Bahasa (Indonesian))

The municipality of Milan has about 1,305,000 inhabitants, of which less than 8 percent live downtown. It is the second largest city in Italy, located in the plains of Lombardy. The Milan metropolitan area, depending on the specific definition, has a population ranging from 3.9 to 7.4 million. In past decades, Milan has had mainly atmospheric emissions problems, such as non- compliance with limits and traffic pollutants that are too high. For this reason, the city has focused mainly on mitigation policies rather than on adaptation. The city started working on monitoring, accounting, and reporting pollutants during the past decades. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the Municipality of Milan in 2005 amounted to 5,803.47 kilotons of carbon dioxide (CO2). This represents the sum of carbon dioxide equivalent tons of emissions from various sectors, such as agriculture, transport and mechanical sources, industrial and non-industrial combustion, fuel extraction and distribution, manufacturing, power generation and transformation, road transport, waste treatment, and solvents. Milan is committed to drastically reducing its emissions; using the year 2000 as a reference point, it plans to cut emissions 15 percent by 2012 and 20 percent by 2020. Milan's climate program focuses on cutting emissions from residential energy use and transport, yet it is also based on a programmatic approach that takes into account all the factors of producing, collecting, and absorbing emissions. Milan's strategy on carbon dioxide forms parts of a framework of measures designed to deliver an organic and programmed reduction of greenhouse gases, directed at the principal sources of emissions: household energy use and the transport sector.
