In European cities the threats of climate change become crucial for city development and human safety. Even though, cities are becoming more and more experienced with new approach to local adaptation planning, there are still clear barriers such as: 1) limited availability of up-to-date data about local conditions, 2) lack of awareness and civic attitude of ignorance towards climate change and its impact on well-being and local conditions in our streets and neighborhoods, lack of public interest, and finally 3) lack of interdisciplinary approaches and public actions to solve local problems and the inability to select the optimal solutions from the set of alternative actions.
