Mitigation actions

Edict 8784 on Solar Energy-Capture Systems in Public Buildings
As a means of driving measures that reduce non-renewable energy consumption, regulations stipulating obligatory incorporation of low-temperature solar energy-capture systems for sanitary hot water in all city public buildings or other state entity new construction or expansion. Regulations also apply to recreational, educational or social centers and housing plan community infrastructure. Participating Organizations: Taller Ecologista (an NGO that works to promote renewable energy) and the Universidad Tecnológica Nacional. Start year

Bike Path Plan
During the indicated phase, 7.2 km of bike paths were constructed to reach 42 km citywide. Awareness campaigns on bike-path use were additionally realized. Currently network expansion and infrastructure renovations continue to advance in order to be integrated into the overall public transportation system. The plan supports bicycle participation as a mode of transport and is a fundamental element for sustainability/mobility articulation in non-motorized transport strategies. Start year 2012

Passenger Public Transport-Only Corridors Installation
Dedicated lanes were established to lend priority movement to public transportation and discourage private-vehicle use on selected arterial thoroughfares. Proposals also call for consolidating a Public Transit Corridors network that—by means of dedicated lanes—increases superior operating velocities and a consequent service improvement in support of more sustainable mobility and reduced fossil-fuels consumption. The network extends along 9.4 km of routes Start year 2012

Adaptation actions

Dengue Prevention Larvae Monitoring
As part of entomological vector control, starting in 2009, a twice-yearly larva survey is realized. This year it took place in May and will be repeated in November. Controls include house, container and Breteau indices. This is a cross-category task that surveys 450 city houses in the course of the week. Focused control actions are also undertaken in high-risk zones, including awareness, manned container clearing and larvicide application. Participating Organizations: The Universidad Nacional de Rosario and neighborhood institutions. Start year 2012

2012 City Forestation Plan
The plan calls for planting 10,000 trees for public greenspace preservation, upgrade and expansion. One thousand units were dedicated to parks and promenades and nine thousand were destined for walkways, of which four thousand were planted by neighborhood and institutional organizations and another two thousand handed over to neighborhood residents. Active citizen, social organization, business and institutional participation in carrying out the project is a core characteristic. This plan’s actions supplement the Cutting and Pruning Plan Participating Organizations: Grassroots organizations (neighborhood associations, schools and community centers) Start year
