Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network

Preventing, preparing for and responding to disasters requires strong cooperation, coordination at many levels and a combination of skills and expertise. The Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network aims to strengthen the Union Civil Protection Mechanism in all these aspects

Coastal erosion due to climate change: assessment and ways of effective mitigation in tourist areas of the North Aegean and Cyprus

The main goal of the BEACHTECH project is to highlight how the coastal zone is adapting to the risks (flood disasters and coastal erosion) due to Climate Change (CC), through the assessment of effective protection projects and actions that can contribute to the sustainable development of one of the most crucial sectors of the Greek and Cypriot economy: coastal tourism. A complementary and integrated action plan is going to be implemented in close cooperation with the University of the Aegean, the Cyprus University of Technology, the North Aegean Region and the Municipality of Pegeia Cyprus, whose beaches already face significant erosion problems

People-Driven: Adapting Cities for Tomorrow

The overarching objective of the   LIFE PACT project is to develop and test an integrated approach to urban climate change adaptation (CCA) that draws on the efforts of multiple stakeholders, including local government, citizens, universities and private actors, to more effectively implement Nature Based Solutions (NBS). Specifically, the project team aims to: Deploy NBS across several pilot and replication sites; Develop and test a replicable method for engaging citizens in the deployment of NBS; Develop and test a replicable method for engaging local stakeholders in the deployment of NBS; Improve the knowledge base for NBS deployment by developing a digital tool to facilitate, track, and analyse the uptake of NBS in citizens’ private outdoor spaces

Transboundary water knowledge exchange hub

The Transboundary water knowledge exchange hub serves as a knowledge exchange and discussion space where water practitioners directly share their experiences, case studies and their ideas related to transboundary water cooperation, as well as to share upcoming opportunities and events. There is an invitation to join if people are: Working on transboundary water management on global, regional, national or basin level; Researching topics adjacent to transboundary cooperation, international water law or water diplomacy; Advocating for greater cooperation between countries on transboundary water resources The objectives of the Community are: to facilitate the translation of knowledge into actions for improving transboundary water cooperation and management create an interactive space for knowledge exchange among transboundary water practitioners outside of virtual events connect professionals on a global level to facilitate creation of new knowledge products foster the culture of peer-to-peer learning

Damsterplein, the coolest square in town

Urban locations, such as city squares, are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change due to more severe heat island effects and flooding following storms, for example. There is a need for innovative and integrated climate adaptive design for urban locations, whilst improving the living environment

Forecasting and protecting fruit crops from frost damage

The objective of the project LIFE FROSTDEFEND is to design, develop and demonstrate the benefits of a novel monitoring and frost forecasting tool to mitigate frost injury in high yield agriculture crops. LIFE FROSTDEFEND aims to develop a smart Internet of Things (IoT) based system to monitor relevant atmospheric (aerosol concentration), meteorological and phenological indicators to predict damaging frost events

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet): Visions and Roles of the Gateway to Marine Data in Europe

EMODnet is the key implementing mechanism of the European Commission's Marine Knowledge 2020 strategy to unlock the potential of Europe's wealth of marine data. Based on the principle of collecting data once and using it many times for many purposes, EMODnet is a network of organizations (currently more than 150) supported by the EU's Integrated Maritime Policy linked by a data management structure. These organizations work together to aggregate and process marine data from diverse sources and generate data products.

National Action supporting Urban Adaptation in EEA Member States

This report summarises and highlights the information provided by the National Reference Centres  for climate change adaptation on the request of the EEA, uploaded to the Climate-ADAPT platform, and coming from the 19 reports delivered under the Monitoring Mechanism Regulation. Information regarding specific aspects connected to national strategies with respect to urban climate change adaptation has been extracted

Urban Vulnerability Indicators

As a follow-up of the EEA report 2/2012 on Urban adaptation to climate change in Europe , this Technical Paper is to propose a system of urban vulnerability indicators, which allows assessing where European cities stand in terms of vulnerability and adaptation, and where certain problems cluster. The proposed indicator set can serve different stakeholders that are relevant in a multi-level approach towards urban adaptation

Bridging the Gap for Innovations in Disaster Resilience

BRIGAID aims to provide integral support for innovations for climate adaptation, focusing on climate-driven disasters like floods, droughts and extreme weather. The project strives to bridge the gap between innovators and end-users, according to the following roadmap: Identify 75-100 existing innovations (Technical Readiness Level - TRL 4-8); Select the most promising 35-50 innovations for further testing, validation and demonstration; Improve these innovations; Select and support the 20-30 most promising innovations for market introduction; Establish this process to make it an on-going, structural activity beyond BRIGAID’s life time

Resilient Cities, Resilient Lives: Learning from the 100RC Network

In order to tackle some of the physical, social and economic challenges of the 21 st  century, in 2013, the Rockefeller Foundation (RF) launched the 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) initiative to support a global network of cities. The “Resilient Cities, Resilient Lives” report provides the best practices and lessons learnt from more than 70 cities that have published Resilience Strategies, containing over 3,000 initiatives in the past six years

Building fire resilience using recycled water in Riba-Roja de Túria, Spain

Riba-Roja de Túria is a municipality located in the National Park of Túria in Valencia (Spain) which represents one of the last remaining forestry lungs in its metropolitan area. The Túria Park also represents a clear example of the scarce and valuable Mediterranean riparian forests associated with the River Túria

European State of the Climate 2021

The European State of the Climate (ESOTC) is compiled by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), implemented by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) on behalf of the European Commission. The ESOTC's findings are based on data and expertise from C3S, as well as other Copernicus services and external partners.

WILD HOPPER - Heavy-Duty UAV for day and night firefighting operations

T he WILDHOPPER project aimed at developing a heavy-duty multirotor drone for forest firefighting.   Besides fire monitoring, the 600-litre platform yields to WILD HOPPER enough lifting power to be used as an alternative to traditional firefighting solutions and cover night operations
