Bermeo reveals the result of the environmental recovery work in the Tonpoi natural space


The Urban Klima 2050 video details the actions carried out in this area of great scenic and environmental value which has been recovered for public use.

For almost two years now, the citizens of Bermeo have been able to enjoy a peri-urban area of great scenic and environmental value, access to which had been hindered in recent decades due to the proliferation of groves, fences and shacks.

The video made by the LIFE IP Urban Klima 2050 project details the actions carried out in order to regenerate the Tonpoi cliff area and open it for public use. The Bermeo project is one of seven pilot projects launched in different Basque municipalities to mitigate and adapt to climate change, which Urban Klima 2050 has documented in a collection of videos and is publishing in stages to coincide with the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 28) to be held in Dubai between 30 November and 12 December 2023.

Led by Bermeo Town Council with the participation of Neiker, this project has gone through the different phases explained in the video. Thanks to environmental work, invasive species have been removed and indigenous trees have been planted, which will enable the coastal strip of Cantabrian holm oak forest to be recovered and foster biodiversity in the area. Furthermore, Neiker has measured the organic carbon in the soil in order to monitor soil quality and contribute to improving adaptation to climate change in the area

Likewise, as the video explains, the landscape has been restored with climate change criteria, including a pedestrian route that facilitates access to the town of Bermeo in addition to environmental recovery.
