Večer comments on adapting to climate change

Ljubljana, 12 August - The newspaper Večer writes in its commentary on Saturday about Slovenia's reckoning with climate change and reconstruction efforts following the devastating floods that hit the country a week ago. It calls for a multidisciplinary approach to rebuilding.

The climate crisis has become a true danger to everyday life, the commentary says under the headline Crawling Out of Mud. It will require a comprehensive, coordinated and fast response by the entire society.

A multidisciplinary approach will be key, so that geologists, hydrologists, construction experts, architects, urban planning specialists and other experts can work together.

It has been proven that a multidisciplinary approach provides the best solutions, and in Slovenia, much legislation and administrative procedures need to be revised.

It is possible to prepare, at least to a degree, for extreme heat, drought and storms through good planning and siting, the civil engineering and architects' chambers have said, with the paper welcoming their cooperation and calling for more.
