High level quantified assessment of key vulnerabilities and priority risks for urban areas in the EU (2016)

Description

This report introduces a high level climate risk analysis methodology for urban areas that provides a top-down, and broad, view of climate risks to cities across Europe. The approach takes advantage of increasing availability of European and global dataset and omputing power to apply the method to 571 cities in the EU’s Urban Audit database. This high level cities risk analysis involved:

  • Identification of stakeholder priorities for city-scale climate risk and vulnerability assessment;
  • Development of a framework for city-scale climate risk analysis that uses EU-wide (or globally available) data so that it can be applied to give a baseline assessment of all EU cities in the Urban Audit database;
  • Development of a suite of EU-wide climate hazard modelling tools for flooding, heatwaves and droughts;
  • Development of an EU-wide exposure and vulnerability assessment of each city in the Urban Audit database;
  • Integration of exposure, vulnerability and hazard datasets to evaluate risks.
