Urban Adaptation in the Baltic Region

The training is free of charge and will be held in English.

For Who?
Practitioners and decision makers within utility, water management and infrastructure organisations, as well as city, municipal and regional public authorities.

Creating climate resilient societies is at the forefront of city, municipal and regional development agendas across the Baltic Sea Region. Climate mitigation and adaptation solutions are paramount in ensuring urban environments that can endure immediate and long-term climatic stresses. The management approach, processes and tools used to plan and implement solutions are therefore crucial to the future prosperity of our urban environments.

Training Days Agenda
The Tools for Urban Climate Adaptation Train-ing days aim to provide a platform for sharing new methodologies and tools among leaders, decision makers and practitioners that work with climate solutions on a daily basis.

Each workshop will include guidance on:

  • Eco- engineering Decision Scaling (EEDS)
  • Collaborative Risk Informed Decision Analysis (CRIDA)
  • CRIDA & World Bank Decision Tree Framework
  • Participant challenge and solution sharing session, moderated by Alliance for Global Water Ad-aptation (AGWA) and Deltares.

Unique to each workshop location, leading regional and national cases studies will be presented for discussion.
