Protecting historical centres from climate change
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing our planet today. From seasonal shifts in climate, with droughts, heatwaves, floods and storms, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale. Cities will face frequent extreme events in future years. The risk to cultural heritage and historic urban centres from climate change is also going to increase. The EU-funded ARCH project will develop a disaster risk management framework for assessing and improving the resilience of historic areas to climate change and natural hazards. Tools and methodologies will be designed for local authorities and practitioners, the urban population, and national and international expert communities. To support decision-making, the project will present various models, methods, tools and datasets. These will be developed in collaboration with the four European municipalities Bratislava, Camerino, Hamburg, and València.
