Webinar: ARCH’s CEN Workshop Agreement for Resilience Management

The conversation around the impacts of climate change and other hazards on our cities is widespread and ongoing: but less so, when it comes to the consideration of historic areas. Despite the gap in attention to these places, historic areas are at risk. To that end, ICLEI project ARCH has developed a draft CEN Workshop Agreement, CWA 17727 on a Disaster Risk Management / Climate Change Adaptation Framework for historic areas, which is now available for public review and commenting. To complement this open commenting period, we will hold a webinar on March 17, from 2:30-4:30PM CET to give a quick introduction to the document and gather feedback from interested stakeholders.

About the Draft CWA:

The Draft CWA 17727 defines an integrated approach that combines disaster risk management (DRM) and climate change adaptation (CCA) activities for historic areas in communities. The overall DRM/CCA Framework in prCWA 17727 includes a:

– characterisation of historic areas and their exposure to natural and climate change-induced hazards,

– set of requirements and recommendation on how historic areas can become more resilient,

– step-by-step process to manage disasters, and to perform and monitor resilience-building activities.

We are excited to welcome feedback on CWA 17727, especially from:

– community/historic area decision makers, technical staff, as well as by councillors working on risk and vulnerability assessment, climate change adaptation and resilience enhancement.

– Other stakeholders who may wish to use the document include heritage managers, public administrators, sustainability and resilience officers, civil society associations, non-governmental organisations, academic and research institutions, as well as consultancies.
