Platform on climate change adaptation and disaster reduction. A Network of networks to facilitate design dialogues and institutional strengthening around climate change and DRR.
PLACARD interchange – PLAtform for Climate Adaptation and Risk reDuction – is an online hub for dialogue, knowledge exchange and collaboration between the climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) communities.
Critical Infrastructure resilience to climate change with case studies that consider storm surges, coastal flooding, extreme drought and winter flooding.
EU-CIRCLE’s scope is to derive an innovative framework for supporting the interconnected European Infrastructure’s resilience to climate pressures, supported by an end-to-end modelling environment where new analyses can be added anywhere along the analysis workflow and multiple scientific disciplines can work together to understand interdependencies, validate results, and present findings in a unified manner providing an efficient “Best of Breeds” solution of integrating into a holistic resilience model existing modelling tools and data in a standardised fashion.
Resilience to Climate change in urban areas.
A multisectorial approach focusing on water aims to provide practical and innovative models and tools to end-users facing climate change challenges to build more resilient cities. The project will provide tools to assess urban resilience from a multisectorial approach, for current and future climate scenarios and including multiple hazards. This holistic approach to urban resilience will enable city managers and urban systems operators to decide the optimal investments to cope with future situations.
An interdisciplinary, practice-based research project investigating climate resilience in European cities.
Through co-creation and knowledge brokerage between cities and researchers, the project is working on developing practical and applicable tools to support cities in designing and implementing climate adaptation strategies for their local contexts. The project aims to compare and evaluate the methods that can be used to plan for climate adaptation in order to move towards formal standardisation of adaptation strategies.
