SMR Stakeholder Dialogue

7 November 2017, 09:00 - 18:00
Thessaloniki 546 40, Greece
Thessaloniki City Hall, Leof. Vasileos Georgiou 1
The Stakeholder Dialogue will bring together the SMR project Tier 1 and 2 cities and their stakeholders to exchange knowledge and experience with the latest group of cities to join the project: Tier 3. The event will be held in the City Hall of Tier 3 city of Thessaloniki and will be opened by Thessoniki's Mayor Yiannis Boutaris. The Stakeholder Dialogue will introduce the project's five tools in the context of an intensive exchange of best practices and good examples from the participating cities. Each session will see voices from the SMR Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities explaining how they implemented successful measures to boost resilience in their cities.

The Stakeholder Dialogue will be the official launch of the SMR Tier 3 programme, where the project is welcoming a new group of cities into the project to validate the project tools and the overall management resilience management process proposed by SMR as a 'European Resilience Management Guideline'. Four tools are already available to cities: the Resilience Maturity Model, Risk Systemicity Questionnaire, Resilience Engagement and Communication Tool and Resilience Policies Tool. The final tool, the City Dynamics Model, will be made public before the event.

Practical information

A social programme will be provided for project partners and Tier 3 cities following the event, free of charge. Participation is free for representatives of local governments, citizens and representatives of non-profit organisations. Registration is open at http://smr-project.eu/news/events/stakeholder-dialogue/.

Tools that enhance operational guidance and decision making for local resilience

The RESIN and SMR tools
16 November 2017, 13:30 - 15:00
Bonn, Germany
Bonn Zone @ UNFCCC COP23
Resilience is a local process, which cities need to drive. This 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, two EU-funded projects, RESIN and Smart Mature Resilience are developing standardized tools to support the design of climate adaptation and resilience strategies. The workshop will present the tools developed by these two projects (including tools for assessing risks, selecting adaptation options and evaluating the resilience maturity of a city) and how these contribute to the overall resilience building process.
