Mitigation actions

Smartcity Málaga Sustainable Public Lighting Project
These initiatives, a part of the SmartCity Málaga project, respectively pursue the creation of a micro-network that optimizes wind energy generation and maximizes public-lighting energy efficiency. Wind generation was established with a 4 kW micro-generator and nine 680 W mini-generators for public lighting system elements. Additionally 200 controlled LED lighting elements were installed and allow operating hours and light intensity to be adjusted in real time in accordance with environmental factors or renewable energy availability. Start year 2011

Third Biogas Engine
The project seeks to bring about a reduction of the polluting emissions associated with USW dumps and promote renewable energy use. Each engine’s installation contributes a 29,000 metric ton CO2-equivalent reduction yearly; added to each generator’s production capacity, there is an additional 3500 metric ton per-year reduction. Overall, greenhouse gas emissions reductions reach 32,500 metric tons of CO2-equivalent per year. Start year 2012

Ecociudad (“Eco-City”)
The program involves the development of a shared “ecocity” culture on both sides of the straight that—through decentralized processes—lead to key stakeholder interactions for improving and protecting natural spaces and environmental resources. Noteworthy actions include actions-based energy-efficiency upgrades using renewable energy sources; expressly promoted participation on the part of women and young people; and the use of reusable shipping containers to create an eco-center to serve as AMEV headquarters in Morocco, from where the eco-city model will be promoted.

SOHO: Local Development through “Neighborhood Recycling” to Create Arts Districts
The goal is to promote local cross-border development by converting degraded neighborhoods into arts districts that drive added value activities related to culture, commerce, and increased public/private partnerships. This includes defining the arts district concept as SOHO, a common brand for the neighborhood; a neighborhood project in the Moroccan zone and the neighborhood’s consolidation with Málaga; and public/ private partnerships to reclaim rundown historic spaces, contribute to economic and sustainable tourism development and create a local cultural- tourism image. Start year 2011

CAT-MED
The goal is to recover the classical Mediterranean city as the model for area development by combining complexity and compactness levels to allow for greater control over natural resource consumption. This is a trans-national and multilevel strategy with experiments in all participating territories and participation on the part of key city stakeholders who develop “green blocks” backed by a political commitment on the part of mayors.

Common Chameleon Biodiversity Project
The project centers on conserving common chameleon populations and led to the creation of a Conservation Center where chameleons that are wounded or exist in insalubrious conditions are rescued, acclimated in semi-wild conditions and reintroduced into their natural habitats. In parallel, essential environmental education activities are undertaken to guarantee the species’ survival. Start year 2011
