The Triple-A Toolkit aims to enhance the resilience of European cities to climate change through a comprehensive set of climate adaptation tools. The main objective of the toolkit is to accelerate urban adaptation to climate change by providing cities with the necessary resources to understand climate risks and opportunities.
The Triple-A toolkit adopts a methodological framework to organize these tools that consist of three aspects: Analysis, Ambition and Action. The Analysis aspect will help cities to assess the current and future climate risks they face. By providing accurate and up-to-date information on climate change, urban planners and stakeholders can make informed decisions about adaptation measures. The Ambition aspect focuses on priority and agenda setting by helping cities to identify key areas of vulnerability and develop ambitious adaptation strategies. Finally, the Action aspect enables cities to identify and implement adaptation policies and measures to reduce climate risk.
Toolkit delivery through
Cross-hub development Teams
Roles within each cross-hub development team:
- Tool Developers/Researchers who are responsible to develop upon existing tools, datasets and frameworks by iteratively considering functional requirements.
- Knowledge brokers who are responsible to ensure that the tools developed in the toolkit are useful for the city hubs through the conceptualization of climate services tailored to the concrete city needs.
- City-hubs who are responsible to validate the tools in their own context by bringing their needs and challenges.
- City liaisons who guide the city hub on how to use the tool and ensure coordination with research and knowledge broker partners.
Smooth communication is the base of these cross-functional teams so different type of meetings will be (are being) scheduled between team members throughout the project.
