Prague City Hall is the local and regional government authority for Prague. The City of Prague has a population of around 1.27 million people. Another 300,000-400,000 people commute to Prague every day for work, studies, treatment or tourism. Prague concentrates approximately 12% of the Czech population and the territory of the city generates approximately a quarter of the national gross domestic product. About 80% of the total workforce in Prague is employed in the tertiary economic sector, which generates 80% of added value. Major universities and a number of research institutes (2/3 of public research institutions) are to be found in Prague, as well as the majority of businesses active in research and development. Prague is the recipient of 33% of the total national expenditure in research and development.

The Prague City Hall is a signatory to the Mayors Adapt, an initiative of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Climate Action, launched in the context of the EU Adaptation Strategy, and is implemented within the Covenant of Mayors. Twinning city in this initiative is Munich. Prague is preparing the adaptation strategy to climate change and the UNaLab project helps with quality preparation for the concrete implementation plan based on real implementation know-how of lighthouse cities.
