e-Guide

 

The RESIN e-Guide decision framework supports you at every phase of your adaptation planning and implementation cycle with guidance, checklists, practical examples, and advice on supporting tools and measures – pooled from the fields of climate change adaptation and disaster risk management. The e-Guide was developed to build on and complement existing online resources by 1) providing access to them via a single portal and 2) reviewing and incorporating selected information from such resources, where relevant.

The entire decision support framework is accessed through the Learning Centre page, where all four phases of the cycle are displayed. Supported by the Learning Centre, you can use My Workspace to create a profile, save and share information with others and track your progress – allowing you to effectively develop and implement an adaptation strategy with team members scattered across various departments and organisations. The pages Background Information, Supporting Tools and Methods, Glossary, and Frequently Encountered Challenges provide overarching guidance across all phases.

 

 

 

The RESIN e-Guide decision framework supports you at every phase of your adaptation planning and implementation cycle with guidance, checklists, practical examples, and advice on supporting tools and measures – pooled from the fields of climate change adaptation and disaster risk management. The e-Guide was developed to build on and complement existing online resources by 1) providing access to them via a single portal and 2) reviewing and incorporating selected information from such resources, where relevant.

Each phase of the cycle is divided into a group of related steps, for example, as shown in Figure 6 below. Each step in the e-Guide decision support framework describes everything you require to complete it successfully, enabling you to use the framework in a flexible way and enter and exit steps as required. The steps and sub-steps also give you detailed information on what needs to be done, including:

  • Goal(s)
  • Preconditions
  • Outcomes
  • Guidelines
  • Experience (from other cities)
  • Supporting tools and methods

The e-Guide is freely accessible; accessing MyWorkspace requires a password to be obtained through a registration procedure in the e-Guide.

SUPPORT FOR COVENANT OF MAYORS REPORTING


If you work for a city that has signed up to the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (CoM), the e-Guide can help you report on selected components of your adaptation progress. The dynamic questionnaire in My Workspace, under ‘focused scenario’, will direct you to a guide explaining which information entered in your workspace can be used to answer which questions in the CoM reporting template. By using the e-Guide forms, the information in your workspace will automatically be in line with the CoM reporting template.
