SUDPLAN : Sustainable Urban Development Planner for Climate Change Adaptation

Description:

The SUDPLAN project - Sustainable Urban Development Planner for Climate Change Adaptation - will develop a web-based planning, prediction and training tool to support decisions in long term urban planning. This will help to assure population´s health, comfort, safety and life quality as well as sustainability of investments in utilities and infrastructures within a changing climate. SUDPLAN will link existing environmental simulation models, information and sensor infrastructures, spatial data infrastructures (SDI) and climatic scenario databases, providing visualisation of long term forecasts of environmental factors for urban subsystems such as building and architecture, traffic and transport, landscape planning and local water runoff.

The end-users of the SUDPLAN services are city planners who can either work directly in the system or they can use different kinds of scientific users – IT, environmental modellers, statisticians etc – to support them. End-users will be able to evaluate risk hazards of storm water local runoff, river flooding and elevated air pollution levels for planned or existing urban areas subject to a changing climate.

SUDPLAN services will be demonstrated for four city pilots: Stockholm, Wuppertal, Linz and Prague. However, whatever European city may access the same Common Services as the pilots and they can also develop own local applications.
