Justice will sign agreements with the UMH and the UA to investigate the emergency derived from climate change
The counselor of Justice, Gabriela Bravo, will sign two agreements with the rector of the University of Alicante, Amparo Navarro, and the rector of the Miguel Hernandez University, Juan José Ruiz, worth 40,000 euros, to study training and research subjects related to the emergency resulting from climate change.
In this sense, Bravo has pointed out that the Valencian Community is “a vulnerable and sensitive territory” to the emergency derived from climate change and especially the Vega Baja. Therefore, in order to “act effectively, it is necessary to be prepared and have the knowledge that, through the experience of the University, allows us to anticipate the emergency itself».
Likewise, Bravo explained that “at the Generalitat we believe that investing in science, research and training is the best way to deal with any type of emergency in advance”.
He has also underlined that Alicante is intended to become “a reference point on climate change» and «a reference in training in the field of citizen security aimed at all professionals who have to act for the protection of the rights of citizens».
On the other hand, with the University of Elche, citizen security matters will be deepened, gender violence, protection of victims, prostitution or matters related to mediation, from the police sphere or psychological care for victims before any catastrophe. “The UMH is a benchmark in the field of psychology and we believe that it can also contribute a lot to this training cycle that we are going to start up and that we are already designing,” said Bravo.
