Recycling in Integrated Urban Adaptation Actions and Greenhouse Gas Mitigation: A Sustainable Approach for Climate Resilient Cities

Luciana Vilardo de Freitas Figueras, Antonio Pasquatetto

Abstract


Cities face challenges due to climate change, including extreme weather events and increasing GHG emissions. In this context, recycling emerges as an essential tool to promote urban resilience, reduce carbon emissions, and promote a circular economy. Thus, the objective was to examine the role of recycling as an integral part of urban adaptation and greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation strategies. The methodology included consultations with articles and legislation on the subject, as well as exploring examples of good practices from industries and effective policies that highlight the benefits of integrating recycling into adaptation and mitigation initiatives in cities. The results demonstrate the importance of effective recycling policies and practices to build climate-resilient cities and promote a transition to a low-carbon economy.
