Kecskemét is the city most exposed to climate change, facing a number of environmental challenges in the Danube-Tisza Interfluve. The most important changes are the deterioration of air quality, the impact of urban heat islands, the problems of green infrastructure and the issue of water management. In this paper, we briefly present the evolution of environmental factors over the past decade, from 2009 to 2018. Attention is drawn to the increase in traffic load, the deterioration of air quality and the resulting problems. We analyze the evolution, quantity and quality characteristics of the citys green spaces, which are very closely related to water management and underline the need for urban rainwater management.
