Synopsis:

With the challenges posed by climate change, a point has been reached, where adaptation of urban water infrastructure and management is paramount for sustainable future development of urban areas. In the project, DynAlp, the potential impact of climate change and city development on urban water infrastructure (and its development/adaptation) is analysed. The aim of this project is to develop and apply a strategic planning tool for integrated consideration of climate change and city development in view of planning urban water infrastructure. The outcome will be a comprehensive climate change impact and adaptiveness assessment. The evaluation of adaptation strategies and its visualization enables the preparation of commented vulnerability and risk maps as a decision support system for planning, adaptation and mitigation strategies.
