This report was prepared in the framework of Work Package (WP) 5, i.e. the WP coordinating the pilot implementation process of the tools developed in WP3 and WP4. It is the second of three peer-review reports aimed at summarizing the feedback from the partner CITIES on the pilot implementation process. Specifically, this report summarises the feedback from the partner cities on the joint pilot implementation of the Resilience Maturity Model, developed by TECNUN, University of Navarra and the Risk Systemicity Questionnaire, developed by the University of Strathclyde, between project months 17 and 22.

The aim of this report is to provide important input to the partners that are responsible for the finalization of both the aforementioned tools. The report demonstrates and highlights the main outcomes of the stakeholder training workshops that took place in the three tier-1 CITIES in January and February 2017, the organized webinars between the tier-1 and tier-2 partner CITIES, as well as a summary of the input received and the results of the 2nd review workshop, which took place in Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain from the 6th to the 8th of March 2017. Throughout the process, the tier-1 CITIES provided collective input having participated in this joint pilot implementation of the toolls, while the tier-2 CITIES shared their additional feedback having followed the peer-reviewing activities within WP5, mainly through webinars and additional calls.

The report summarizes the recommendations of the partner CITIES for the finalization of the tools, assesses the impact of both the tools for the stakeholders of each tier-1 CITY and states some general conclusions and recommendations. This input will be the basis for designing the subsequent joint pilot implementation of the Resilience Building Policies Repository and the System Dynamics Model. The report is divided into five parts: The 1st part provides an introduction to the main elements and parts of the pilot implementation process, while it also provides information on methodology and process details. The 2nd part provides an overview of the pilot implementation of the Resilience Maturity Model, while the 3rd part follows the same structure, but this time focusing on the Risk Systemicity Questionnaire. Both these chapters, summarize the feedback from Kristiansand, Donostia/San Sebastian, and Glasgow, respectively, and present the reports on tools and webinars that have been produced by their respective, matching tier-2 peer(s). The 4th and final part of this report provides a general outlook on the pilot process, summarizes the tools’ strengths and weaknesses as elaborated by the peer-review CITIES during the webinars and the review workshop and provides with some final recommendations for both the tools.
