Advancing Resilience of Historic Areas against Climate-related and other Hazards

Advancing Resilience of Historic Areas against Climate-related and other Hazards

Objective

ARCH will develop a unified disaster risk management framework for assessing and improving the resilience of historic areas to climate change-related and other hazards. This will be achieved by developing tools and methodologies that will be combined into a collaborative disaster risk management platform for local authorities and practitioners, the urban population, and (inter)national expert communities. To support decision-making at appropriate stages of the management cycle, different models, methods, tools, and datasets will be designed and developed. These include: technological means of determining the condition of tangible and intangible cultural objects, as well as large historic areas; information management systems for georeferenced properties of historic areas and hazards; simulation models for what-if analysis, ageing and hazard simulation; an inventory of potential resilience enhancing and reconstruction measures, assessed for their performance; a risk-oriented vulnerability assessment methodology suitable for both policy makers and practitioners; a pathway design to plan the resilience enhancement and reconstruction of historic areas; and an inventory of financing means, categorised according to their applicability in different contexts. The project ensures that results and deliverables are applicable and relevant by applying a co-creation process with local policy makers, practitioners, and community members. This includes the pilot cities Bratislava, Camerino, Hamburg, and Valencia. The results of the co-creation processes with the pilot cities will be disseminated to a broader circle of other European municipalities and practitioners. ARCH includes a European Standardisation organization (DIN) as a partner in order to prepare materials that ensure that resilience and reconstruction of historic areas can be progressed in a systematic way, through European standardisation, which will ensure practical applicability and reproducibility.
