CEN Workshop announcement - City Resilience Development – Framework and guidance for implementation with a specific focus on historic areas

While negative impacts of climate-related and other hazards on urban areas are widely discussed, their impacts on historic areas have not been studied extensively enough. The aim of the workshop is to develop a management framework that helps, for example, heritage managers, public administrators, and other actors in the field of climate change adaptation planning (CCA) and disaster risk management (DRM) and heritage management.

  • to go beyond the system definition of resilience and acknowledge the need for socially just resilience building
  • to understand which steps are necessary to develop a combined DRM/CCA action plan that takes needs and opportunities of historic areas into account when building resilience
  • to provide guidance on how to operationalize the different steps of the DRM/CCA management framework
  • to provide guidance on which stakeholders to involve in each step of the management process and
  • to provide a conceptual structure for different tools and methods as well as for indicating where and how these can support end-users in a DRM/CCA framework.

The kick-off meeting will be held on Wednesday 26 May 2021.


All interested parties are invited to submit comments on the draft Project Plan to the Workshop Secretary, Ms Saskia Maresch – DIN (Saskia.Maresch@din.de) by 25 May 2021. You are kindly requested to use the commenting form below.
