Bristol Workshop: Climate Change




Requirements gathering workshop

25 - 28 Jan 2016


City representatives and consortium partners met in Bristol from 25 - 28 January 2016 for an intensive workshop on the topic of the risks associated with climate change. The workshop built on the ground work established at the first of the workshops in Riga, Latvia. The key questions were as follows:


  • What are the actions/policies that cities have already implemented, are planning to implement and should implement concerning Resilience and Climate Change?
  • How could we estimate the evolution of Resilience?
  • What kind of resilience evolution can we expect?
  • What are the barriers to resilience development in cities?
  • What are the risks associated with climate change that need to be recognised by organisations in your city/region in order to be resilient?
  • What are the ramifications of the identified networks of risks associated with climate change?
  • What policies can be implemented to both mitigate the risks and to adapt to their ramifications?
  • What are the unintended consequences that derive from the policies which are aimed at climate change risks?

This workshop represented the first of a series of events in project CITIES'  for CITY representatives and local stakeholders where requirements are gathered from the CITIES. The results gathered from these workshops will contribute to and inform the Resilience Maturity Model.
