Urban Adaptation Challenges: Promoting Sustainable Planning Using Integrated Vulnerability Analysis

Main objective of the project is to conduct vulnerability analysis and to create a methodology of integrated vulnerability assessment of cities and their inhabitants to temperature extremes, using the classification of urban surfaces, aiming on supporting the adaptation planning and adaptation measures in cities. Detailed spatial vulnerability assessment will be performed for three pilot cities (Prague, Brno, Ostrava), using climatological analysis and participatory approaches, considering projections of future developments (climatological scenarios, land cover changes, socio-demographic trends), with an output of specialized vulnerability maps. The integrated assessment aims to contribute to the sustainable urban planning in the Czech Republic.

Project is supported by the Technological Agency of the Czech Republic - ETA Programme for Applied Research, Experimental Development and Innovation in Social Sciences and Humanities. Duration of project: 3/2018 - 2/2022.
