A strong environmental policy

Climate Plan

A climate plan for what?

What is the climate plan that each intermunicipal authority has? Applying to a defined region, it is a program of concrete actions intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and anticipate the foreseeable effects of climate change. Sud Roussillon is currently working on a Plan covering the period 2020-2030, then, as a second step, will focus on 2030-2050.

A precise diagnosis

For this plan, the Community of Municipalities is working closely with the Catalan Town Planning Agency (AURCA). With this organisation, a complete inventory of the region has been drawn up, on very broad themes: mobility, agriculture, air quality or even a balance sheet of greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption. Thus, areas for improvement have been identified.

To draw the outlines and orientations of the strategy to be adopted, two steering committees have been set up. Under the aegis of AURCA, working groups reflected on the directions to be prioritised. Around the table are, local elected officials, members of civil society, contributors to the energy world and community staff.

Start the region's energy transition

The participants compared their experiences and ideas to determine the priorities and issues to be highlighted. At the heart of the discussions: renewable energies, housing, new modes of travel, the agriculture of tomorrow or even reducing energy consumption.

The Climate Plan strategy should make it possible to ensure the transition of Sud Roussillon to a positive energy region, in particular thanks to renewable energies. And thus offer an even better quality of life to the inhabitants.


Targeted actions

Among the actions planned, the upcoming creation in Alénya, of wooded places to fight against urban heat spots. Another planned action: the waterproofing of schoolyards. Or solar installations for self-consumption at the Espace Aquasud swimming pool.



Blue flag

Once again, the Blue Flag label has just been awarded to the Port and the beaches of Saint-Cyprien for the year 2021!

Each year, the Pavillons Bleu list rewards communities and marinas that focus on water quality, beach cleaning, information, protection and environmental awareness. It is an award with a strong focus on tourism, a symbol of exemplary environmental quality.
