Development of the ‘Clima Gerais’ search tool which provides a platform for municipal public bodies to access to basic concepts of climate change, as well as the vulnerability index of their municipality, aiding towards the implementation of public policies to combat climate change. 

The "Clima Gerais" Platform, developed in 2015, supports Minas Gerais municipalities in low-carbon development and territorial adaptation to the effects of climate change. The platform has 4 modules, in which it is possible for the municipal manager to have access to basic concepts related to climate change, learn about the degree of vulnerability of their municipality through the Climate Vulnerability Index of Minas Gerais, update themselves with best practices and identify the funding funds are available for your climate actions.

The recently launched fourth module (2020), provides a methodology to support the development and implementation of municipal public policies to combat climate change.
