URBAN CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION IN THE BALTIC SEA REGION

ONE-DAY TRAINING WORKSHOPS

While Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and other decisions are made at national levels, real decision making often takes place at the local level where issues of implementation are addressed. How can cities remain resilient in the face of climate change and other uncertainties? What are the best ways to assess and deal with risks? We need to increase capacity for water managers and decision makers at regional and local levels when it comes to planning for sustainable development and resiliency in urban environments.

A new project being co-financed by the Council of Baltic Sea States (CBSS) aims to do just that. The SIWI Swedish Water House, together with Baltic Development Forum (BDF) and the Union of Baltic Cities (UBC), is organizing a series of training workshops to connect decision makers and local practitioners (cities and municipalities) engaged in climate change adaptation areas. The aim of the workshops will be to train these parties in a set of risk management approaches known as bottom-up approaches. AGWA and Deltares are collaborating members of this project.

The Tools for Urban Climate Adaptation Training 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. The event is part of the initiative Urban Climate Change Adaptation in the Baltic Sea Region that provides opportunities for capacity building, training and applying the skills to existing situations. Altogether, the initiative organizes three workshops in the Baltic Sea Region countries.

These workshops are designed for practitioners and decision makers within utility, water management and infrastructure organisations, as well as city, municipal and regional public authorities.

MATERIAL PRESENTED

Each workshop will include guidance on:

  • Eco-Engineering Decision Scaling (EEDS)
  • Collaborative Risk Informed Decision Analysis (CRIDA)
  • The World Bank Decision Tree Framework
  • Participant challenge and solution sharing session, moderated by Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) and Deltares.
  • Unique to each workshop location, leading regional and national cases studies will be presented for discussion.

THREE WORKSHOPS ACROSS THE BALTIC REGION

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

All events are free of charge and will be conducted in English. The Stockholm training workshop will be livestreamed through SIWI's Facebook page.

About the Knowledge Platform

The Knowledge Platform is designed to promote and showcase an emerging set of approaches to water resources management that address climate change and other uncertainties -- increasing the use of "bottom-up approaches" through building capacity towards implementation, informing relevant parties, engaging in discussion, and creating new networks. This is an ongoing project of the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) funded by the World Bank Group.
