Reconciling Adaptation, Mitigation and Sustainable Development for Cities
RAMSES is a European research project which aims to deliver much needed quantified evidence of the impacts of climate change and the costs and benefits of a wide range of adaptation measures, focusing on cities.
RESilience to cope with Climate Change in Urban arEas – a multisectorial approach focusing on water
The RESCCUE project aims to help urban areas around the world to become more resilient to climate change. RESCCUE will bring this objective to practice by providing innovative tools and models to improve the ability of cities to withstand and recover quickly from multiple shocks and stresses and maintain continuity of services. An end-users – city managers and urban service operators – oriented toolkit will have the capability to be deployed to different types of cities, with different climate change pressures.
A pan-European framework for strengthening Critical Infrastructure resilience to climate change
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.
European Partnership for Innovative Cities within an Urban Resilience Outlook
EPICURO’s scope aims to foster multi-actor transnational cooperation and enhance knowledge about technology solutions available to local communities, as well as to increase Civil Protection teams’ specialisation and enhance policy and institutional commitment for increasing public support and citizens’ capacities for building resilience within their communities.
Smart Mature Resilience
For more resilient cities in Europe
Smart Mature Resilience (SMR) is a multi-disciplinary research project working for more resilient cities in Europe. Researchers and cities come together to enhance cities’ capacity to resist, absorb and recover from the hazardous effects of climate change.
SMR has been working for just over two years to develop a suite of tools to help cities enhance their resilience. These tools have been developed in close cooperation between seven partner cities of Glasgow, San Sebastian, Kristiansand, Rome, Riga, Bristol and Vejle, SMR's four university partners, ICLEI Europe and standardization body DIN.
