Training webinar 3

"Protecting public health from climate change and designing pathways towards more resilient cities"

13th September 2017 from 11:00-12:00 (CET)

The 3rd Training Webinar of the European research project RAMSES on "Protecting public health from climate change and designing pathways towards more resilient cities" will take place on 13th September 2017 from 11:00-12:00 (CET).

The RAMSES project has produced a large number of resources that can be offered to cities and adaptation practitioners in a co-creative process between cities and researchers. This final training phase of the project is the last opportunity to get acquainted with the project's key findings and to interact directly with the experts.

The webinar "Protecting public health from climate change and designing pathways towards more resilient cities" is the final edition in a series of webinars and experts from Tecnalia and the World Health Organization will present their work on climate change, health and city resilience.

3rd RAMSES Webinar

"Understanding vulnerabilities, assessing economic gains and unlocking the transformative potential of climate adaptation in cities"

Climate adaptation and resilience building are already a priority in many cities. While there is no doubt about the urgency of adapting to climate change, knowledge and resources are still needed to support its implementation. 

During the webinar Understanding vulnerabilities, assessing economic gains and unlocking the transformative potential of climate adaptation in cities we shared the research presented during the 3rd RAMSES Stakeholder Dialogue, which took place on the 4th October in Rome and the input resulting from the discussions during the day.

Project researchers presented their work on crucial adaptation topics:

• Understanding climatic and socio-economic risks and vulnerabilities in cities

• Assessing the costs and the benefits of climate change and adaptation

• Exploiting the transformative potential of climate adaptation and designing pathways to resilience

 

3rd RAMSES Stakeholder Dialogue

"Understanding vulnerabilities, assessing economic gains and unlocking the transformative potential of climate adaptation in cities"

The 3rd Stakeholder Dialogue explored some of the project’s core research topics such as:

  • Understanding climatic and socio-economic risks and vulnerabilities in citiesHow can Europe-wide vulnerability assessments support cities in planning for adaptation action? What are the limits of such assessments and how can cities build on this high-level information to tailor data to their local context?
  • Assessing the costs and benefits of climate change and adaptation: How can the ‘cost methodology’ developed by the London School of Economics support cities in identifying the most effective climate change adaptation strategies? Can cities use the methodology to understand more about their economic makeup and its vulnerability to climate change?
  • Exploiting the transformative potential of climate adaptation and designing pathways to resilience: Can the multi-criteria analyses available provide cities with a clear way to select adaptation actions and help create a pathway to urban resilience? 

The report of the 3rd RAMSES Stakeholder Dialogue is currently under preparation and will be shared soon.
