The city of Bern must reconsider prioritization in times of climate crisis and growing social challenges. A guest contribution by Tanja Miljanović. Tanja Miljanović is co-president of the Green Free List City of Bern. – zVg
the essentials in briefThe city of Bern prioritizes wrongly – recently also with the flood protection along the Aare. Instead of a cheaper solution, the more expensive sandstone wall was chosen. These financial resources could be better used elsewhere. A guest post.
At the recent city council meeting, the waves went up. We approved new flood protection along the Aare for CHF 149 million. Anyone who remembers also knows that it was only in June that we approved a further 48 million francs for upgrading measures along the district heating network. Both investments are climate adaptation measures.
In concrete terms, this means: In 2023, the canton and the city of Bern must approve almost CHF 200 million to protect the people of Bern from the direct consequences of the climate crisis, such as heat and floods.
Wrong prioritization and missed investments
How could it come to this? The answer lies in incorrect prioritization and decades of neglected investments in climate protection, which are costing us dearly today.
It is all the more worrying that the city, despite scarce financial resources, continues to prioritize incorrectly – most recently also with regard to flood protection. Despite significant cost differences, the city council opted for a continuous, solid sandstone wall for purely aesthetic reasons. Also in the Matte, where even the Federal Commission for the Protection of Monuments initially recommended a cheaper and functionally more suitable, prepared concrete wall. The city council’s decision costs us extra, both in terms of acquisition and maintenance.
Should the city of Bern reconsider its priorities?
67% Yes, that would make sense.
1 Yes, that would make sense.
33% No, they’re good at it.
2 No, they’re good at it.
The city of Bern is in financial difficulties. A pilot project for a basic income is being shelved even as poverty in the city increases. We cut back on culture and counseling for women affected by violence. Our climate targets are not on track. But for an expensive sandstone wall, a sum in the millions doesn’t seem to be a problem?
In a city steeped in history like Bern, monument protection certainly has its value. But in times of the climate crisis and growing social challenges, we need to rethink our priorities.
