German only. Translated title: Framework for urban climate resilience.
The MONARES project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), has two central objectives: (1) the development of reliable methods for climate resilience monitoring and evaluation of adaptation measures and (2) the practical support of this monitoring and evaluation among beacon municipalities and counties, which are being funded under BMBF’s key funding area on resilience through action in cities and greater regions.
For this purpose, the four partners adelphi, Dialogik, IREUS and University of Giessen are developing an urban climate resilience framework with a modular resilience indicator set. The indicators and associated methods for collecting and evaluating data will be tested for their applicability and practicability in German cities.
Building on the resilience indicator set, the consortium is developing a methodology for evaluating the impact of adaptation measures, which will be further tested with cooperating municipalities. An essential part of the project also consists of making findings available to relevant actors from local authorities, the scientific community and the political arena. In this publication, the framework on urban climate resilience developed in the project is presented.
