Guideline on ARCH co-creation approach

Deliverable 3.1, November 2019.  >Download

The guideline establishes a harmonised methodological approach and framework for the cooperation between scientific partners and city partners within the ARCH project. More specifically, this document serves to define a common vision, principles and a practical framework (‘rules’) for working together, as well as identifying possible barriers and suggesting strategies to overcome these.
The document was developed drawing on literature review, but also input collected from the project team  through two workshops (held in Bratislava in June 2019 and in Brussels in November 2019), organised and facilitated by ICLEI.

City baseline report

Deliverable 3.3, April 2020.  >Download

This report establishes the baseline for the municipalities of Bratislava, Camerino, Hamburg and Valencia, with respect to their selected cultural heritage sites. The ARCH project has a multi-dimensional thematic focus on 1) cultural heritage management, 2) disaster risk reduction and 3) adaptation to climate change, and as such all three dimensions are addressed in each city’s baseline review. The primary aim of this report is to introduce the scientific partners to the pilot cities, and specifically to their selected cultural heritage sites for further analysis in the context of ARCH. A secondary aim is, through the writing process, to equip the city partners (as lead authors) with expanded knowledge of the governance frameworks relevant to all three thematic areas mentioned.

State-of-the-art reports of concepts, approaches, standards and technologies

Deliverable 7.1, November 2019.  >Download

In this series of six reports, concepts, approaches, standards and technologies relevant to the scope of the ARCH project were reviewed and analysed. These reports provide the project team with a shared understanding of key framework conditions relevant to the project. The content will contribute to an ARCH project glossary, serve as a basis for the development of a disaster risk management framework for historic areas and an inventory of measures to support all three stages of the disaster risk management cycle, and inform future standardisation activities.

Mapping and characterisation of good practices in cultural heritage resilience

Deliverable 7.2, July 2020.  >Download

This report compiles initiatives and case studies on advancing the resilience of cultural heritage to natural and human-induced disasters as well as to the long-term consequences of climate change. The initiatives and case studies are accompanied by a replicability assessment aimed at identifying enabling factors that could facilitate their transfer.
Forty initiatives are featured in this report, 32 as snapshots and 8 as case studies. They have been classified according to the type of measures featured, the main hazards they respond to, and the disaster risk management phase that they cover. The eight case studies contain in-depth information on main outcomes, factors of success, and lessons learned. They were also analysed from the replicability perspective.

End-user requirements to ARCH tools and methodologies

Deliverable 7.4, May 2020.  >Download

ARCH is developing decision support tools and methodologies to improve the resilience of historic areas to climate change-related and other hazards. In order to ensure that these methodologies and tools are in line with the needs of the local end-users and the state-of-the-art, ARCH strives to get an in-depth understanding of the thematic challenges that four cities participating in the project are facing. This report describes the continuous analysis of the local end-user requirements, lists the requirements gathered between November 2019 and April 2020, and presents the initial system specifications of all upcoming ARCH tools.
