Unique in Slovakia, a methodology for assessing vulnerability to heat waves and torrential rainfalls was developed and applied in the city of Kosice -district Kosice West, and also in the city of Miskolc. Based on it, a strategy for mitigating climate change impacts was prepared. The basic principle of the strategy was the selection of optimal adaptation measures to help local residents and entities to the greatest extent possible. Those that have low costs and a quick benefits, that also have an effect other than adaptation and those that are acceptable to the public were preferred. As part of the project, the publication „Adaptation to climate change – the urgent role of cities“ was published.
