Rapid Assessment of Comparative Climate Risk in Cities
|Deltares is developing a methodology to assess the risks for climate-induced natural hazards in cities based on open-source global data in combination with rapid assessment modelling. Resilient Cities Network and Deltares are now conducting this assessment for cities in the Network to map how climate risks are distributed throughout global regions, and to learn how the assessment can be developed further to be most beneficial to cities. Interviews were held with several Chief Resilience Officers (CROs) from a diversity of cities to present and discuss the results. The roundtable of CROs will discuss how the method can be tailored to optimally fit the needs of cities.
