Climate Impact Diagrams

Climate Impact Diagrams build an understanding among city stakeholders on opportunities and risks of climate change for city sectors.

Climate Resilient City Tool (CRCTool)

The Climate Resilient City Tool supports climate adaptation planning and promotes dialogue on adaptation options.

FloodAdapt Tool

FloodAdapt is a decision support tool for accelerating climate adaptation actions by understanding flood risks.

Assessment of Risk management capabilities​

This tool is used to guide review and/or self-assessment of risk management capabilities.

Pluvial hazard, risk assessment and adaptation

Tool designed to help local authorities to explore pluvial hazard & risk from extreme events.

Thermal Assessment Tool​

The tool visualizes the frequency and severity of past and future heatwave events in Europe to better understand this phenomena and to improve the adaptative capacity.

RESIN Adaptation Options Library​

This library of adaptation measures aims to help identify solutions to address climate risks including heat, pluvial, fluvial and coastal floods and drought.

Figure 20: Reduction in flood risk with assumed current protection standards compared to no flood protection (in percentage).

FLOPROS model and REACT tool

The GLOFRIS model gives insight in direct flood damage of riverine and coastal floods. The newly developed REACT tool is a simplification of this model and allows for a quick, transparent and simple overview of the current state of flood risk for real estate assets.

Windstorm damage assessment tool (WISC)​

The WISC model provides an open-source model which gives damage estimates in line with reported damages from previous windstorms.

Figure 10: Example of social vulnerability mapping provided by the SVI tool interface

Social vulnerability tool

This tool is designed to assess communities’ vulnerability to climate hazards such as flooding, extreme heat and drought.

Figure 17. Example of Climate story - Logroño

Climate stories

Climate stories share information, experiences and targeted messages about climate change and adaptation.

Dynamic Integrated Flood Insurance (DIFI) model

This model offers insight in flood insurance premiums, unaffordability and demand for coverage under different flood insurance systems.

Adaptation Pathway Generator tool

The Pathways Generator Tool (PG) supports the development of alternative pathways into the future, via evaluations of costs, benefits and co-benefits.
