Thinking globally, adapting locally

Cities are places of economic activities and innovation, but also major emitters of carbon dioxide and, due to their high population and infrastructure density, sensitivity hot spots with regard to climate change impacts. In other words they are a large part of the global climate problem but also nuclei for change.

The RAMSES project therefore built upon case study cities, which were grouped into focal and supportive cities. The focal cities served as exemplary sites for the development and application of tools and methods developed within the project. The supportive cities served to test individual tools and analysis for transferability.
