Status:
Finalized
Solution:

Client:
Supported by the Fundación Biodiversidad del Ministerio para la Transición Ecológica
Dates:
2018 - 2019
Location:
Spain

The project seeks to define a methodology of easy application through a computer tool that allows Spanish cities to assess their climate risk and, from there, plan the implementation of measures to adapt to climate change.

The results of the project include a tool that can be easily applied in any municipality in Spain, which has been tested in more than 50 municipalities. The main strength of the methodology developed is that it is based on public data, which is updated periodically, so that the evolution of climate risk values can be monitored.

Risk makes it possible to obtain the first values on general climate risk at municipal level for today and for the end of the century, as well as a comparison with the Spanish average. It also provides the level of risk for different climatic threats, such as droughts, desertification, heat waves or rising sea levels, among others.

 

The tool will be available from 1 July 2019. If you are interested in it and we can help you with its application, send an email to comunicación@wearefactor.com and we will get in touch with you!
