Adopted in 2018 by the Corsican Basin Committee, the Climate Change Adaptation Basin Plan for Water defines the strategy to reduce the vulnerability of territories. With an island-wide action plan, it includes a set of 57 concrete measures aimed at providing water responses to climate change. This plan, an integral part of the general policy of adaptation to climate change led by the Community of Corsica, must allow to succeed the bet of an adapted management of water. It requires governance that places the fight for water among the major political and societal concerns of Corsica today and tomorrow.

The Hotel of the Community of Corsica, old(former) Grand Hôtel and Continental, an exceptional green setting prevails. Of its creation in 1894, the garden, drawn by the landscapist Charles Peyrouse, kept(preserved) the symmetry and the organisation based on volumes and exoticism. Giving in to the fashion of the exotic gardens of Côte d'Azur(French Riviera), the park was crashed of gasolines(essences) calling back(reminding) the distant lands, dear to the British men(women). In time, the garden answered the whims of the different owners. However, he(it) keeps(preserves) remarkable sorts(species) even at present. Big(Great) herbs in gasolines(essences) full of flowers, via(including) conifers, the ajaccien climate indeed allows, the coexistence of a big(great) diversity of sorts(species), allowing so to create specific atmospheres. Registered on the inventory of Historic monuments in 1992, the garden makes the object of a particular attention confided(entrusted) to an architect landscapist who restored him his initial organisation, around a very visible(obvious) central prospect(perspective) since him Grandval Courts, with successive symmetrical beds in half-moon, of alignments of palm trees and of the games(sets) of terraces.
