RESIN - Climate Resilient Cities and Infrastructures

RESIN is an interdisciplinary, practice-based research project investigating climate resilience in European cities. Through co-creation and knowledge brokerage between cities and researchers, the project is working on developing practical and applicable tools to support cities in designing and implementing climate adaptation strategies for their local contexts. The project aims to compare and evaluate the methods that can be used to plan for climate adaptation in order to move towards formal standardisation of adaptation strategies.

Beyond RESIN

The project will contribute to informing the mid-term revision the EU Adaptation Strategy and other relevant EU-level policy processes. Furthermore, the project results will create resources for urban adaptation, which will lay a new foundation for standardisation in this field.
