This document is an instrument for planning climate policy at local level, provided for in the Climate Basic Law and its preparation is subject to the objectives, principles, rights, duties and obligations, in terms of climate action, established in this legal document.

This Strategy aims to respond to the challenges arising from climate change, focusing on adapting to the current and future climate, mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, as well as mobilizing the community for the necessary transformations in the process of adaptation and decarbonization of our territory.

With the recommended vision, it is intended that Baião asserts itself and distinguishes itself in its ability to efficiently and balancedly manage available resources, in addition to promoting the decarbonization of human activity, from a multisectoral perspective, focusing on valuing and protecting balance between the various dimensions of sustainable development.


The Mayor of Baião City Council, Paulo Pereira, expressed his “satisfaction that we are presenting this document, which is of great importance, not only for Baião, but for the world, since what is good for the planet , it is good for people and the Economy.

When it comes to the environment and sustainability, it’s not enough to have a nice speech. We have to be consistent. The municipality is doing its part, but it is very important that each citizen also does theirs.”

This document is part of the work to prepare eight Municipal Climate Action Plans and an Intermunicipal Climate Action Plan contracted by the Intermunicipal Community of Tâmega e Sousa (CIM), a fact highlighted by Paulo Pereira, since “the solution we found in the within the scope of the CIM, it allows us to have a more integrated view of our territory and, in this sense, the more aligned we are, the better.”

We do not pursue this goal just because the law requires it or because there are goals to be achieved by 2050. We do it because it helps us to systematize the measures we have been implementing and go further”

For his part, Henrique Gaspar Ribeiro, councilor responsible for the Environment, referred to “the importance of this public presentation ceremony for citizens to learn about this plan, the measures it includes and to understand exactly what its purpose is.”
