Regional Workshop: Southeastern Europe

Guiding local resilience planning in European cities
28 February 2018, 10 - 17:00
Athina 118 54, Greece
Serafio, Pireos 121
The Smart Mature Resilience project has developed a European Resilience Management Guideline for resilience-building in cities, with a particular focus on the three challenges of climate change, critical infrastructure and social dynamics. This guideline is supported by five tools: the Resilience Maturity Model, Resilience Information Portal, Risk Systemicity Questionnaire, City Resilience Dynamics Model and Resilience Building Policies. The tools are now available for the cities to use. SMR is holding four regional workshops to share these tools with the project's group of Tier 3 cities as well as new "Tier 4" cities.

The Southeastern Europe Regional Workshop will take place in the Tier 3 city of Athens and will focus on the uptake of SMR tools for tackling heat waves and the Urban Heat Island effect in Greek cities and for the implementation of the Resilient Athens 2030 strategy, reinforcing city-to-city collaboration through co-creation activities on resilience and getting collective feedback on the European Resilience Management. The event is aimed at adjacent and neighboring municipalities to Athens and further Greek cities, with a view to potentially joining the SMR Tier 4.

In attendance will be the Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities of the SMR project, SMR project research partners and European and international policymakers and influential voices in the sector of city resilience. The SMR Tier 1 cities are: Donostia/San Sebastian (Spain), Glasgow (United Kingdom) and Kristiansand (Norway); Tier 2 are Bristol (United Kingdom), Riga (Latvia), Rome (Italy) and Vejle (Denmark) and Tier 3 are Amman (Jordan), Athens (Greece), Greater Manchester (United Kingdom), Malaga (Spain), Malmö (Sweden), Münster (Germany), Rekjavik (Iceland), Stirling (United Kingdom) and Thessaloniki (Greece).

Open European Day at Bonn Resilient Cities

25 April 2018
Bonn, Germany
Gustav-Stresemann-Institut
The fifth Open European Day at Bonn Resilient Cities will bring together key adaptation actors from different organisations: cities and city networks, regional and national governments, researchers, adaptation experts and European representatives.

This year’s Open European Day will build on last year's addition of interactive workshops around key themes. These will be organised by cities, where they will share their local governments’ experience in depth or by relevant institutions that support cities through programmes and initiatives.

Themes will include adaptation, resilience and cultural heritage, looking for the first time into the intersection of adaptation and culture. The OED Marketplace will return following the success of the format at the third Open European Day, providing a space for participants to network and brainstorm.

Registration for the event can be completed online.

Strategic planning tools for urban resilience: city-to-city exchange on local resilience planning

World Urban Forum
9 February 2018, 11:00 - 14:00
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre
On 9 February (11:00-14:00 UTC),ICLEI Europe will hold a training session for cities at the World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur on building resilience in cities.

The resilience-building process at the local level requires skills and methodologies that are often not at hand in city administrations. In order to enhance cities’ capacity to resist, absorb and recover from the effects of climate change, the EU-funded project Smart Mature Resilience is developing standardized approaches and tools to support the design of climate adaptation and resilience strategies.

The training event will present the tools developed by the project, discuss how these contribute to the overall resilience building process and how they feed into an integrated management system for resilience planning that can be transferred to the local context of other cities, regions and countries.
