Impact and Vulnerability Analysis of Vital Infrastructures and built-up Areas

Description:

This document offers a practical guideline for conducting a risk-based process for assessing impacts and vulnerabilities of urban areas and their infrastructure related to consequences of Climate Change (CC). The objective of this guideline is to describe the methodology in a way that is understandable for a variety of stakeholders, thus providing the base for the collaborative execution of a Vulnerability Assessment according to IVAVIA (Impact and Vulnerability Analysis of Vital Infrastructures and built-up Areas). The overall aim of a risk-based Vulnerability Assessment using IVAVIA is to facilitate the understanding of cause-effect relationships of climate change, identify geographical hotspots of vulnerability and risk, and assess what impact on people, economy and built-up area under study can be expected now and for the future due to the changing climate. This allows to identify entry-points for adaptation measures and areas where actions are needed first.

This document has been prepared in the framework of the European project RESIN – Climate Resilient Cities and Infrastructures.
