In recent months, València has made significant progress on its local work plan; engaging stakeholders in multiple workshops and publishing a Local Dashboard to communicate indicators of resilience-building efforts in places like the Huerta and Albufera. The Local Dashboard actively monitors the indicators defined in the Local Work Plan and filters the actions being carried out by the various working groups created in València.

So far, València has held two workshops. On the one hand, on 23th February, local partners convened a co-creation workshop on agroclimatic and bioclimatic indicators. The aim of the workshop was to define and adjust the indicators to be calculated for València for regionalised climate change scenarios. These conversations will support future progress in the generation of knowledge on climate change impacts on the natural and agricultural heritage of the municipality. Twelve entities from the academic world, civil society, public administration and the private sector participated. And on the 31st of March, València held another online workshop named "Inventory of resilience measures for cultural and agricultural heritage," with six representatives of the local ARCH consortium. The objectives of this workshop were to raise awareness of the inventory of resilience measures among local agents in Valencia; a meaningful step forward in training and capacity building in the use of the tool and the identification of areas for improvement of the tool. Both workshops have been carried out in the framework of the resilience-building strategies in the Huerta and Albufera, the historic areas chosen by the ARCH project in València, defined in the ARCH Local Work Plan.
