GRaBS Adaptation Action Planning Toolkit uast0-2


The Adaptation Action Planning Toolkit is a web-based vulnerbality assessment tool developed by the Green and Blue Space Adaptation for Urban Areas and Eco Towns (GRaBS) project.

The project is a network of leading pan-European organisations involved in integrating climate change adaptation into regional planning and development.

The web portal includes:

  • Assessment Tool - an innovative, cost effective and user-friendly risk and vulnerability assessment tool, to aid the strategic planning of climate change adaptation responses, with a particular focus on flooding and heat stress. The Tool assesses the vulnerability of urban areas to climate change impacts, with an additional assessment of relative patterns of spatial risk where suitable data is available. The Tool allows the visualisation of vulnerability, exposure and climate hazards within a particular location.
  • Case Studies - a database of case studies, showcasing climate change adaptation approaches, with a particular emphasis on those relating to green (including gardens, parks, productive landscapes, green corridors, green roofs and walls ) and blue (such as water bodies, rivers, streams, floodplains and sustainable drainage systems) infrastructure. Rather than focus on the physical elements of the case studies, the database describes in detail the process that have supported the implementation of adaptation responses in a range of urban areas across the world.

The project has been co-financed by the European Union's Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and made possible by the INTERREG IVC Programme.
